Red Shafted Flicker

Click photo to enlarge
One of our year round resident woodpeckers, a male Red Shafted Flicker, visits the suet cage this evening.
These gracefully formed birds with their spots, bars, black breast-crest and red shafts (males) also have orange feathers on the undersides of their wings & tails which make them easlily identifiable in flight.
They're social & chatty and everpresent here throughout the year sharing their lives with us even in the deepest of winter.
Unlike other woodpeckers you will see them foraging on the ground in warmer weather because they are also ant-eaters. Posted by Hello

you know wat u should go to hell, u r going to die soon anyway so just leave it alone. global warming is not happening. i have had the coldest winter in my life we were at 16 degrees when are average is normally around 35 to 40 degrees. "global warming" is just the earth moving as the universe expands. oh and have u ever heard of the ice age. we r not still frozen r we. NOOOO. the ice age came and gone so will the heat. it is just earth moving. one day maybe millions of years from now the earth will be to far from the sun and the next planet would be venus.venus would be in the same spot as earth one day because of the ever expanding universe and we will inhabit it for it shall have everything we need until one day when the sun implodes.and to leave u now with this little comment .there is nothing to worry about "global warming" will pass
