A Northern Flicker adding a wonderful splash of color to a December afternoon.

Side note: It appears the flicker has the same frenemy as we do.  This day the flicker landed within the territory of one very aggressive red squirrel who charged the flicker from a distance of at least ten feet forcing the Flicker to quickly take flight. The upside of the altercation was we got a nice view of those very colorful wing and tail feathers on the underside of the Flicker.
