they are so pretty.
Beautiful captures of the Northern Flicker Susan. How lucky you are to see it in your garden.
The Flickers are cool birds, great sighting and photos.. Have a happy day!
You should see how I jump up and down when a Pileated wanders through our neighborhood. Now those big boys are fun to watch.
i love the flickers.
These are beautiful images of the Woodpecker
Cool bird and nicely captured Susan.
Great pictures. Did they cause the damage to the bark of the tree, or is there another cause?Cheers - Stewart M - Melbourne
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.
