20 flickers eating grubs in my yard

I've always had yellow shafted flickers here but lately I've seen as many as 20 digging grubs in my yard at first I could not tell what they eating. Then I got my field glasses out and discovered they pulling plump white grubs out

They are one of the coolest looking birds in the yard. They all look the same cant tell male from female. I wonder if the grubs are Japanese Beatle larvae. If anyone knows please write about it here
