Northern Flicker

Unlike some of the other animals that have grown accustomed to having me take their pictures, the Northern Flickers have continued to display their distaste at my photographing them.

I can tell by the rather large load of crap deposited on my car the other day when I ventured into the Flicker’s territory.

They have spotted and speckled camouflage like Hawks.  Like most woodpeckers Northern Flickers are noisy and loud.  They rival crows in the amount of noise they make, which makes them easy to find but hard to photograph because they won’t let you get close enough.

I heard this Flicker in a tree top and got these shots by moving closer a couple steps at a time.
