Big Bird

February 5, 2021

A Northern Flicker visits my yard following a winter storm that dumped 18" of snow on us. Flickers prefer feeding on grubs living in the soil so when the ground is covered they become regular visitors to my suet feeder.

What an awesome portrait, Melody! I love the pose with the head turned upward. The Northern Flicker is one of the most striking songbirds on the continent!
