Northern ("Red-Shafted") Flicker ♀ ??? (Madera Canyon, AZ) (1 Viewer)

Appears to be an adult female Red-shafted Flicker. Noting the brown crown and pale uniform greyish face, lacking the red nape spot found on Yellow-shafted.

Very nice pic!

I presume it's exactly what one would expect to find at that site? I don't know if adult female plumage differs significantly from (unsexable?) juvenile.
