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!!

      Great shots!! Beautiful! Do they peck like wood peckers? Are they related?

      Oh wow - I've never seen one of these before. Great set. Like Ricky, I also added number 1 to my faves - you got so close.

      Oh, the first and last ones are just extraordinary shots! The beautiful details and patterns are so clear. They must be part of the woodpecker family - beautiful nuisances!

      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.

      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.
