A Male Northern Flicker

Tuesday, October 22, 2019,

This is a male Northern Flicker I found at the Lido beach Passive Nature Area. Flickers are members of the woodpecker family but they often forage like Robins. This handsome bird was tearing up the grass in his search for insects and worms. The dirt was really flying as he hammered his way through the turf. He was a man on a mission. JK

  1. I love these guys! I think he was probably looking for ants too. I remember Sue K. telling me that they are especially attracted to ants for dinner.

  2. Whatever he was looking for, he was doing his very best to find them. So was his mate, who was nearby, but who I failed to get any decent photos of. JK.
