Young Flicker at nest

5 posts in this topic

Flicker-at-nest-2-copy.jpg

Shawn Zierman shared the nest location near my house but I had no idea I had to walk up to my knees in mud in a old beaver pond to get the photo. Shawn was impressed since he wore waders but I was little nervous since there were beaver size snapping turtles in the pond to and I was walking into the pond with bare feet. Thanks Shawn for the adventure and the nest location. There were also a Eastern Bluebird and several Tree Swallows nesting nearby. Hopefully we'll locate a Great crested Flycatcher nest that is most likely nesting in the area as well.

Now that is a cute flicker! His head is almost more fuzzy and furry than feathery. See, wasn't it worth the mud and snapping turtles? At least you shouldn't have been involuntarily collecting woodticks.

Great image sir, shows the bold nature of this youngster. He's obviously not too long away from leaving that cavity. I was impressed with the heron like stealth approach you took to get into position for the shot smile
