Male Northern Flicker
|[ Sizes: Orig | Med | Small | Thumb ]|
Male Northern Flicker, Robert Allerton Park, Illinois. This preserved natural area attracts a nice range of birds throughout the year, including this Northern flicker exploring a savanna area. Though they are woodpeckers, Northern flickers spend a fair amount of time on the ground looking for food. This makes it easier to get a good photo of them without tree branches in the way.
