Flicker Time!

Northern Flicker
Colaptes auatus cafter

These birds' beaks are fearsome and they know how to use them!
Flickers! Just stay away from the house and work on the trees!!

I see you!!

SADHYA Very beautiful shots Marsha.
Did you do some clever editing here? Perhaps softening the background? It works really well. I must learn how to do it.

lgnelson We used to live in a house that had cedar siding, and these guys LOVE pecking large holes in it. Not my favorite bird, but great shots, Marsha.
