Weird Bird

Out my work window this morning

Any idea what this is?

The black bib and the red nape of the neck ought to make this fella easy to ID - but I have never seen one before. The robins have been out and about; this one was a newbie today.

Oh! I found it! It's a Northern Flicker (a Yellow Shafted variety, and I think male)
