You are right feather. There are yellow-shafted and red-shafted Flickers. We have them both but I've never seen a yellow one. Of course it's easier to see the colors when their wings are spread. At the feeder you can usually only see the identifying color in their tail. Here's a good shot of a yellow shafted Northern Flicker.
