Northern Flicker – Colaptes auratus
This bird was a thrill to catch. I was at Ashalnd Nature Center today and I was trying to catch some field birds so I sat on the edge of a teaching structure and sat as quietly as I possibly could. Then things started happening around me.
This bird flew across my field of vision and settled in a near-by tree. It sat long enough for me to take as many pictures as I wanted.
