Black wide neck with red dot on back of head

Recommended Posts

Ours has a longer neck and I don't see color around face or tail ~ only bright red on top back of head.  It doesn't have black dots on chest either. Are males different  than females?

The only difference is the females lack the black "mustache" stripes that the males have.

What is the main color of its wings/body?  Also, what was the habitat and behavior?

Both Northern Flicker males and females have black spots on the belly. To be on the safe side, see if it is any of these woodpeckers:

Downy Woodpecker

Hairy Woodpecker

Red-bellied Woodpecker (female)

Pileated Woodpecker (female)

Yellow-bellied Sapsucker

Some of these are long shots, but just making sure...
