Default Nesting Time - Northern Flicker

This male northern flicker was banging away at the entrance to its den and cackling aloud. It chased off a couple of other males that got too close for comfort (no pics of the chase though... it all happened so fast). Still, I was very pleased that it cooperated with me and posed.

1. Perched over the entrance to it's nest. Hole just barely visible to the left of its neck.

Really outstanding photos of a beautiful woodpecker. These guys don't stick around my woods too long...just a few weeks in late winter, so I always enjoy quality photos of them.

Thanks Paul. I was pleasantly surprised to find this bird only about 10-12 feet up in the tree. I usually see them too high up the trees for quality captures so this was a great opportunity. Cheers, Dan
