Northern Flicker


An intergrade Northern Flicker enjoying the suet at one of our feeders.  It’s called an intergrade because it has features of both a Yellow-shafted Northern Flicker and a Red-shafted Northern Flicker.

    Looks like it takes some effort to hang on and still be able to get some food.I think these birds are quite stunning.

    • Ruth, I agree with you! It was hanging on with its talons and seemed quite comfortable!
