I was surprised to see this beautiful bird at our suet feeder 2 days in a row. I do hope she (for I think it's a she) is going to stay around and find a mate and raise a few little flickers. We've never had one in our area so it was amazing to see her. Such beautiful colors with a black bib and black dots on her face, speckled chest, a touch of red at the back of her head; and that beautiful creamy toffee color! I love it when we attract a new bird to our feeders.
(Not a great photo - I got my point-n-shoot and took it before she flew away.)
Don't forget to check out our artist and blogger friend, Jeanette Jobson, and her Fishy Bits project goal! I've included the link - so visit and read what it's about. You might be able to help her meet her $ goal for a home printing press.
Although her deadline is in April, don't wait until April to donate, if you are so inclined. Remember, we're all in this together!
