a Northern Flicker in Portage LA Prairie, Manitoba

Looking out my kitchen window this morning, I was amazed to see this bird penetrating the ground with its beak. After a soft rain yesterday soften the ground, I thought it was looking for worms but in stead I read that it was going for ants. Great, now we have an ant hill restaurant! Research showed that it was a Northern Flicker!
