The northern flicker showed up in the vegetable garden when I went to refill my watering can.
With his festive attire of grey hat with a beautiful splash of red in the back; speckled waistcoat and jacket and black cravat; I picture the northern flicker as the ringleader of a bird circus.
He is a very jolly bird to see first thing in the morning and for that I am grateful.
Flickers are pretty amazing looking birds. I always appreciate my interactions with them.
Thanks, Mark. Me too. I loved your cherry blossom post; especially your own poem at the end. Nice job!
