The Northern Flicker is a bird I would normally see only 1 day each fall,
then never again until the following fall.
I have been super excited to see this Northern Flicker
spend his winter in my yard this year.
I have seen him every single day since November.
All of these images were taken through the glass window,
they are not cropped.
I can't tell you how thrilling it is to be this close to a wild bird.
To have the opportunity to see his marking so clearly,
to learn his likes, dislikes and to know so much about his personality.
