On the migratory route

Each year twice a year for about 4 or 5 days our back yard is covered with Northern Flickers. I love to see them in the Spring because that means warm weather is on the way. They usually show up around the last week of March first week of April. But when I see them in the Fall I know winter is fast approaching. I watch them constantly while they are here because it seems they leave as quickly as they arrive, they are so pretty and fun to watch and there can be up to 30 or 40 of them at a time. I am so glad that they have made our yard a regular stop on their migration route.

While there are flickers living within a few miles of our home, we don't get the wonderful view you have described. Thanks for sharing your experience with us.
