Thanks for your kind words everyone. I hadn't realized that I had in fact captured a male and a female flicker. (The male is perched on the branch). I haven't seen them since,,,,,,,,,,, Cheers, Dan

Beautiful shots Dan. Flickers are one of my favourite birds and you captured them exceptionally well.

Cheers.

Jim

I've never seen such a short plump flicker! Could they be juveniles? The tails don't seem long enough. Maybe they're just longer and slimmer down her in the South

Nice find and captures of the Flickers, Dan. I get some of those in fall and winter and they are a handsome bird.

Probably the angle that I took the photos of makes them look shorter...? When I saw them pecking on the ground they looked about 12-13" long.

Thanks to all those who posted such positive feedback after my thank you post of Sept. 2.

Cheers, Dan
