Sorry for the bad photos - I’m very curious as to what this was. Looks like it was seeking shelter from the rain storm we’re having here in Vancouver.

It’s body was like a small Northern Flicker. Possibly due to the poor light, I couldn’t see it’s distinctive bib or spotted belly. I did notice some orange wing bars though. My next guess would be sap sucker, just because it looked like a rounder and smaller Northern flicker (?) don’t think it was a European Starling either as it seemed too large.

Thank you!
