Northern Flicker

IMG_5398a

Often heard and very shy, rarely do they hang around long enough to get a photo, this Northern Flicker hung around long enough to get a couple of shots.  You’ll more than likely hear them and not see them.  They have a laughing-like call similar to Pileated Woodpeckers.

The male has the red stripe on the back of his head.  They nest in trees but perform their courtship ritual in the middle of a field.
