Northern Flicker on shepherds hook

by Martha

I have been taking pictures but I am in no way a professional, the picture I posted before was a good one, but they were not on the feeder, I had to go to the dr's the other day and when we drove up there was a female flicker on the bottom of the bird bath, of course no camera! I went in and got the camera and took the one I already posted, then later I looked out and this one was looking like he wanted to get on the suet cake which is on the shepherds hook. I knew if I wanted to snap a picture I better hurry up because they are skittish birds, so I got this one. I took one a long time ago, but it did not turn out too good, so this one will have to do.

Northern Flicker

I love Flickers, too. Here in Seattle we have red-shafted flicker. Your photo is great because it shows the beautiful bright yellow feathers of the Northen Flicker under its tail. Our Flickers have salmon red colored feathers under the tail.

Hi ,

I too like those beautiful Northern Flickers. They kinda look like they are to pretty for the wild and jumping around on the ground with that beautiful set of feathers on.

They are becoming one of my favorite birds.

I like Lakeview Ohio.
