Yellow Shafted Northern Flicker

This bird was sitting on the ground all slumped over last Sunday. I could tell it was a northern flicker but had no clue if something was wrong with it. Looking through my long lens I could see the bird’s eyes were open and bright and before long it flew to a different spot. Not many seconds passed before it was bent to the side again. Several minutes later it began to preen and then flew to a nearby oak tree to continue its preening. Birding friends tell me it was sunning.
