Marge & Don,

We have a similar bird coming to our suet. I think it's a juvenile

While birding Los Carneros, this morning we came across a Nuttall's Woodpecker that had a red crown very far forward on its head. This lead us to wonder if it was possibly a hybrid with a Ladder-backed Woodpecker.   Our ebird checklist has a photo.
