Northern Flicker!

A few days ago I saw a large bird in my yard. It was pecking at something in the dirt along the edge of my sidewalk. It turned out to be a northern flicker! I’ve never seen one in this area before, although there are downy woodpeckers (& pileated woodpeckers once in a while). This is the first time I’ve ever seen one in MN!

  1. Hi Song of the Wolf, How cool! They are noisy but oh so unique, and interesting. Their “Trill” call is very very loud if they get excited. Glad you have such a visitor! Have a fantastic day!
