I thought a three toed....this has no red occipital patch of the hairy...no?

Only male Hairies have the red spot. American Three-toes have less white on the head and finely barred flanks, which are clean in your bird.

And for what it’s worth, you’re not going to see a Three-toed at a feeder. They’re elusive and highly sought-after birds of high boreal forests and burn areas.
