Lookin’ good! I took this on mega zoom so it’s a tad fuzzy but it’s good to see him back in the yard. Both the Yellow and the Red-shafted Flickers are lumped together as a Northern Flicker. The Wikipedia site has a nice photo of the male and female Red-shafted on a tree trunk. Personally I have never seen the female outside of a book. Hope to one day soon.
I can’t help it – and I mean no disrespect for this winged beauty – but his spots make me hungry for a poppyseed muffin.
