Wow he is handsome! I do love looking at your birds. Their colours are so brilliant. Great pics as always. (Any news of the comp yet?)
What a stunning bird the Northern Flicker is!
Dear Chris,I was sitting on the floor by the back door changing the lens on the camera when I saw the Flicker fly in. I have the screen in the bottom half of the door so I just took these pics right through the screen! Had I stood up I might have been able to get even better pics through the glass, but I was concerned the Flicker would fly! Fingers crossed the Flicker returns when I am outside.I have not heard about the photo contest. They had over 4,000 photos sent in and the few I looked at are impressive! I will check and see if any of mine even made it to the gallery.I love posting photos for "Corner". Your kindness is reassuring. Birds and bugs are not always easy to photograph. They just do not respond to my ideas on what would be a great shot.Thanks for enjoying the pictures.Sherry
Dear Deb,He is stunning!!!Eats beetles too and ants. My kind of bird. I keep hoping to meet the bird that likes Squash Bugs. Every year I seem to have a huge crop of them.The Flicker's range does extend into Eastern Canada. Do they visit your area?Sherry
