Artist's Description

These mid-sized woodpeckers are beautifully marked and have a friendly expression (allow me this anthropomorphism) that makes them one of my favorites. Although they are often found on the ground where they dig for ants and beetles, they do come to the suet and will hunt bugs in trees. One way to recognize a flicker is by the white rump, easily seen as they fly away. This one is a male; note the black stripe that goes backward from the base of the bill.

Flickers are common in open woods and at the forest edge.

This picture was taken in Green Lane, PA, on January 7, 2011.

For more information on flickers (or any bird in North America) you can visit the Cornell University website at http://www.allaboutbirds.org/guide/search.
