I've been looking for this species for some time now but could never get a decent shot. The Northern Flicker is a member of the Woodpecker family I believe, and thie one is a Red Shafted Northern Flicker.

Thanks for looking, and for your continued support!

I've never heard of such a bird, but it's lovely to learn! I think we could guess it was of the woodpecker family because of the tail. You've caught it perfectly, full of lovely details. Brilliant shot! Smile

Amazing detail in what is an unusual bird for me, don't think I'd ever heard of this one Stan. Maybe just a bit too much space around it this time, still has your hallmark all over it though...

Canada has some charming birds, have never seen this one before, but its resemblance to a woodpecker is obvious. So glad you managed to get a shot of it at last, and thankyou for sharing it.
