It's probably a Lewis's as Joel has suggested to me.
I've never seen a Lewis's and had no idea they were so similar in size
and shape to Flickers.
One thing, though, would a juvenile Lewis's have seriously worn tail
feathers already? Maybe the lighting, my more or less deficient color
vision and the distant view didn't reveal the true colors.
