Monday Flicker Blogging

Northern Flicker - New Mexico  2012

Northern Flicker - New Mexico  2012

Rounding out the set of bird photos taken at Kay's birdbath, here are Northern Flickers, male and female (of the woodpecker family). Also known as Red Shafted flickers.

Mike used the Olympus 14-150 lens for these shots.

Nice shots. I know I've seen northern flickers up here in Connecticut, but not very often. They are very distinctive. Thanks for sharing

As far as birding goes, I'm afraid that I'm something of a poseur, getting my IDs from Barbara, or in this case, Kay.
