Artist's Description

Chisel-Billed tree-climbers. They have stiff, spiny tails which act as props as they hitch their way up the trees. The flight of most species is undulating, produced by several quick beats and a pause. The males mostly have some amount of red on the head.
Colaptes auratus.
The brown back and conspicous white rump, visable as the bird flies up, is the best field mark. Flickers are our only ‘brown-backed’ Woodpeckers. The flight is deeply undulating: overhead this species flashes considerable yellow under the wings and tail. Close up, a wide black crescent shows across the breast, a red patch on the nape, and, in male, black ‘whiskers.’
