This
bird was in my front yard a couple of days ago.  It flew away
before I could get a better picture.

    That’s a male Nuttall’s Woodpecker.

    Correction – noting where you live, that might be a ladder-backed woody. In which case, lucky you – that’s a hard bird to see!

    Actually, I’ve moved, now living in the southwest. I just haven’t updated the sidebar. I am no expert on birds, but I am fairly sure you were correct the first time.

    Well, upon further review (Flickr set) maybe it is a ladderback.
