Northern Flicker in North Vancouver

by North Vancouver

A male Flicker has been making his presence known for several weeks by calling all day from various areas within the neighbourhood. Now, he has taken to pecking on our roof, in what I beleive to be another attraction call to females.


We continue to try to "shew" him away when he pecks on the roof. As he flies off, another seems to be keeping watch in a neighbouring tree and calling to him as he flies off. Could this perhaps be a female?

I hate to interfere with nature, however, it appears my house is the "prefered renedezvous" of Flickers, and I have read the damage they have done to homes.
