a librarian sent me to this abandoned golf course where she said there many birds including Eagles nesting; it was a great area, imagine at the right times of year it has more species
the object of the attention of the Black-billed Magpies; not sure what happened to the Flicker, probably hit by a car...
A Northern Flicker posed for us pretty well in Oaks Bottom Refuge. This photo doesn't show the red wing feathers of the western subspecies (in the east they're yellow).
My FOY Northern Flicker along Campbell Flats Road this morning. This guy was feeding in the fields along the road there, and eventually flew off, displaying his characteristic white rump patch.
