Northern Flicker

It was a nice surprise to see this infrequent visitor in our back yard...


He "poked" around for a little while, then moved on to another tree, out of sight.

  3. You should see how I jump up and down when a Pileated wanders through our neighborhood. Now those big boys are fun to watch.

  6. Great pictures. Did they cause the damage to the bark of the tree, or is there another cause?

    1. Thanks Stewart. I'm unsure what caused the damage to the tree bark, since it was that way when we moved to the place. There are several woodpeckers in the area, including the large Pileated woodpeckers, so it could have been them. It remains a mystery at this point.
