not a very good picture as I took it through the screen in our pop up. A flicker shows up every morning in a small tree outside. If I try to go out and get a better picture, it is gone so for now this is what I have.
The woodpeckers, piculets, wrynecks, and sapsuckers are a family, Picidae, of near-passerine birds. Members of this family are found worldwide, except for Australia, New Guinea, New Zealand, Madagascar, and the extreme polar regions. Most species live in forests or woodland habitats, although a few species are known to live in treeless areas, such as rocky hillsides and deserts.
