Northern Yellow Shafted Flicker, originally uploaded by photographerpainterprintmaker.
Friday morning a colourful visitor came to dine on my front lawn. He is a Northern Yellow Shafted Flicker. I had to shoot this through my dirty screened in front window, so please excuse the fuzzyness. I really need to do some window cleaning. I switched to video mode just in time to catch him fly away. Needless to say he made my day.
We have a lot of doves that I like to watch, and listen to, as they coo. I love the red on the back of his neck. He looks like a dove with a long beak.
awsome bird luv it

Great photos of the Flicker!
Hope he returns to dine! I’ve surely never seen one in my front yard! But now I would know what one looked like from your excellent shots!
Amazing. I love all the different birds that come to see us, but we don’t have any of these.
Very nice and I love the way you laid out your photos. :)
You got some great shots of him – from all sides!
