Northern Flicker Sighting

About an hour ago I was walking past one of our living room windows, and I saw a bird at the edge of our neighbor’s yard.  It was a different-looking bird than I am accustomed to seeing from our house and yard.  I hurriedly grabbed my camera and replaced a 25mm lens that was residing on the camera with a 75-300mm lens.  I had my doubts that the bird would still be in the spot where I had seen it, but I was ready for the next sighting.  Surprise, surprise!  The bird was still in the same spot!  I held the camera to my eye and took a photograph through our living room window glass and screen.

I slowly and quietly made my way outside through our front door, hoping to get another shot. I forgot about our cat.  Patches followed me outside, prompting bounding down the stairs to the sidewalk below.  Patches didn’t see the bird.  The bird, however, saw Patches.  Bye, Bye birdie. The Northern Flickr flew away. I hope that I see it again!

    Beautiful shot of the Northern Flicker. They are gorgeous birds. Put out some suet and they’ll come and enjoy it!

    Enjoyed the pictures from your latest trip. As you know, we’ve been out hiking this week and searching for waterfalls. Had a wonderful time.
    Hugs,

    Beautiful bird. We had about an 8 foot gator in our neighborhood last week but I didn’t get a picture. Got to love spring up north when the temperature warms up and the birds come out.
