Default Flicker

It is for a special reason the bird is called "flicker"?

Good question, Marcelo. I did a Google search and found it's because of their call. "During aggression and courtship a loud flick-a flicka is heard."

I don't even remember 'em then! I do, however, remember trying to chew my arm off on a few occasions.
