hi John,

The Northern Flicker is a woodpecker whose main diet is ants although they love suet. The yellow-shafted flicker like yours has the red on the nape of the neck, the red-shafted has a red mark on the side of it's face. When they take flight the underwings are a beautiful golden or red, respective.
