The Flicker

Northern Flickers are such common and familiar birds, I usually give them no more than a glance, even when they’re doing un-woodpecker-like things like hopping on the ground looking for ants. Pity. They’re really quite engaging birds — and handsome. And who doesn’t enjoy the Flicker’s loud ‘kew!’ on a grey autumn day, that bright, familiar, almost homey call.
