It was early in the morning and it appears this Northern Flicker was drying out. I love photographing this species. They are really cool.

Northern Flicker

IMG_0668.JPG

While hiking along the banks of the Miami River this week, I saw a larger bird fly into the tree line. I lost it in the trees. I kept looking, but just could not find her. A few minutes of walking later, we headed back the other direction. As we returned to the spot where I lost this bird, I saw something move. There she was .. A Northern Flicker. She just sit there long enough for me to take this photo.

It has been months since I photographed a Northern Flicker. I think I have seen this one a couple of times, but never where I could clearly identify him, or capture a photograph. This is a male Northern Flicker, and he is beautiful.

I posted three shots because they all lack something that is in a different photo. I love the colors of this bird. I hope you enjoy it too.

By the way, it was snowing .. that is not your eyes.

Smile for the camera

I love this photo of a Northern Flicker. I am seeing more of these as the season continues. They are normally hanging out in the mornings along the river near Farrington Reserve. This one didn’t stick around long .. but long enough for me to capture this photo. I could have cropped out more of the tree, but it really make the photo so much better.
