who am I?

(Winthrop, Minnesota)


Watched this one eat by digging into the soil with its long pointed beak. It was a particularly windy day so it stayed in the same spot for quite a while. You can see bright yellow peeking out from under the wings and has a bright orange stripe on the back of the head going ear to ear. I have some video of him poking into the soil looking for food I assume.

Pretty sure it is a Northern Flicker. You can learn more about them here.
