Drying Out or Displaying?

When I took this photo yesterday afternoon during a brief sunny break I made the obvious assumption that this female Red-shafted Flicker was drying out her feathers.  But, today when I looked through the series of photos again, and all the odd contortions, I began to wonder about the possibility of mating displaying on her part.  I never saw a male, but you know the old saying, "If a tree falls in the forest, and no one is there"? So, just saying.
