Northern Flicker, Downy Woodpecker, White-throated Sparrow, and more

feb flicker
Saturday, February 27. Less than 1 hour of sunshine between the snowflakes - but what an hour it was! I got tons of good pics, including this Flicker rooting around in the garden.

blue jay curious
I managed to get quite a few great shots of animated Blue Jays in various poses. I really like this curious fellow, who was captured in the moments between snow and sun.

This is the tan striped variety of White-throated Sparrow. There is a white striped version, as well.
