Northern Flicker emptying my feeder.

Albany, Oregon. I woke up to find a beautiful female eating at my platform feeder 6 feet from my dining window under the carport. After she ate there for about 1 minute, she flew to the barn feeder on a pole 6 more feet away and proceeded to eat & dump seed to the delight of the wrens, doves, juncos, cowbirds, sparrows, black birds, towhee & finches.

The seed mix is premium wild bird with chopped shelled sunflower, safflower, niger & black oil added into the mix. She is part of a pair that has nested in my area for years.
