Anyone care to guess? Flicker?

Recommended Posts

North shore of Lake Nipissing, Ontario.  Up in an leafless tree about the size of a dove maybe.  Looks like a Northern Flicker?  First picture looks like it has a blackhead though but second pic shows abit of red or orange in the neck.  Any ideas?   Thank you.

The perch position doesn't look right for a woodpecker either.  The branch looks too small for a woodpecker to wrap its relatively long toes around.  The tail looks too short, too.

On the other hand, I don't have a better suggestion.  I think the red is part of the bird and not a berry or a photographic anomaly.
