April 5, 2010 Northern Flickr

New bird on my suet feeder today! Well, not new to my yard, these big fancy dressed Northern Flickers love to poke their beaks down into the ground in our yard looking for bugs or worms. In the spring we can often see as many as 6 at one time, each working it's own space on the grid. I have never seen one land on and eat from the feeders however. Every movement he made the feeder would swing about making it hard to capture him. He pause for this just for a moment so I snapped quickly! Spring is so much fun with the returrn of many birds for the summer and a quick visit from those who are migrating thru. Hope to capture a few more and share them with you here!
