      Either a long-billed thrasher or a brown thrasher, depending on where you saw it. But I would say long-billed because of the bill length

      It looks to me more like a long billed thrasher.

      Hm...I'm not completely familiar with Northern Flickers, but I think that this may be a thrush of some type. Possibly a Long-Billed Thrasher or Brown Thrasher? The belly pattern and bill seems similar, although I'm not completely sure. Here's a picture of a Brown Thrasher for comparison.   brownthrasher I found the white markings on the wings look similar! Great pictures!  I hope this helps. :)
