Northern Flickers are one of my favorite birds. Who can resist a woodpecker that often doesn't peck wood? A woodpecker that is down on the ground more often than not. Who can resist the subtle but startling coloration of a Flicker, for that matter?
This shot gives you a good look at the lovely spotted underside of a Northern Flicker.
Their streamlined shape of a Flicker contributes to an overall impression of grace and style. You can also see the familial resemblance to a Red-bellied Woodpecker in this shot.
