Northern Flicker | Yellow-Shafted

We looked outside during dinner and watched a bird investigate a hole in a small tree about 20 feet from the house. Binoculars helped us identify it as a Northern Flicker of the Yellow-Shafted form. It spent about an hour inside the hole occasionally taking time to look outside. It might have considered it as a home. That would be nice.

      We see them often. But, they don’t stay close by for long. This one treated us to a lengthy visit and it returned again late in the day.
