Northern Flicker On The Fence

Photograph of a Northern Flicker by Doug Couvillion

On a recent Sunday morning I set out to photograph of some of the birds frequenting my backyard feeder. It’s always a slow process that requires a lot of patience.

My waiting paid off when a pair of Northern Flickers came through the yard. I was a little surprised because I rarely see flickers in my yard.

This beautiful female was kind enough to pose while I snapped a few photos of her perched on the fence. Her mate didn’t give me the same opportunity.
