Northern Flicker

Looking sharp as he contemplates another try at getting seed from the bird Feeder.

This northern Flicker was just a bit too heavy to stand on the collapsible perches on our feeder although it did not stop him from giving it a go. He had to constantly work by flapping his wings to stay on the perch and I am sure he was using as much energy as he was taking in. After a few short tries he must have thought the same as he moved on to looking for food in the trees.

    1. Hi Shannon, i did not know they would drink from hummingbird feeders and when we see them at our feeders they do spend a bit of time rooting around trying to get the large nuts in the mix.

feedback welcome
