I remember the first time I saw a northern flicker. I thought it was so exotic, I called my brother and described it, so he could help me identify it. It was the start of my love for birds.

Glad you liked her Pablo!

Hey Robin, I have a hybrid male Flicker here now, I am hoping for a pic, but the weather is not the best for photos.

Yup!!! That's the one!!! Been pecking on my house at about 7 am every Saturday morning. Dadgumit... Also I have saved a few that have fallen down into my chimney. Cool looking birds but I wish they would keep more reasonable hours so I can sleep in. lol
