The clipped left ear marks him as a feral.

somewhat surprised as I was observing two cheetahs at the Scovill Zoo in Decatur Illinois, I saw a bird land mid trunk on a tree near me. As I looked it disappeared into the trunk. It did not look like a woodpecker or flicker. Suddeningly it appeared at the opening and I started to take photos.

I believe this is a European Starling Sturnus vulgaris -

European Starling, Identification, All About Birds - Cornell Lab of Ornithology

but it wasn't the blackish coloration I was familiar with. Another bird landed on a close branch and I snapped a few photos of it as well.

And this one, probably eating an insect, crossed our road in Tarangire National Park, Tanzania:

The tawny one is particularly good. Full sunlight on its flank really brings out what a handsome animal it is.

I thought i'd post this young tom here

it seems a lot of people think urban areas aren't wild
I stalked him just as I would in the woods, actually I had to work harder because there was almost no cover

this was shot at about twenty five feet
when he figured out I was there he moved on rather quickly

This guy didn't want to come any lower than a branch about 10m above the ground, and flew off before I got close enough for a really good shot.
