Northern Flicker

18 posts in this topic

Northern Flickers sure are neat looking Woodpeckers. I don't often get that close to them so I was happy this guy decided to visit my backyard.

Very pretty. I'm glad he came to visit you also. The background could not be a more perfect color for him.

Very nice Buzz! I'm only noticing one major problem with the shot....there's no snow in the background wink It looks like mid-December over here in west central Minnesota. If you're snow free in the cities, I'm going to take a couple of weeks off and spend my time down there.

Beautiful shot of a very skiddish bird.

Hey Mike, well we were snow free (Jimmy Hendrix song just entered my mind)until last night when we got about an inch in Lakeville, which has since melted a fair amount. Come on down anytime! smile

Yes, the bird had landed about ten seconds prior and hopped up on a log.

Here is how a good friend desribed this image to me....

Looks like the ballerina with her fancy polka dot blouse and yellow skirt, and black lobster bib on

Superb image, great backyard setup. Was there another flicker nearby that this male might have been displaying for with that flared tail or was it a stretch moment? The light is really golden and yummy here.

Thanks guys!

Shawn, we have a pair in the area and I'm thinking nesting closeby as I hear them daily and see them frequently as well.
