Knock....knock.....knock..........that's the sound I heard as I was photographing some flowers. So, I followed the sound.......and there he was! This Northern Flicker Woodpecker was waaaaaaay up high in a tree.
The Specs:
Nikon D90, 18-200 mm lens, ISO 1600, 1/2500, f7.1


  1. Ooooh, love the Flickers! They are quite spectacular, aren't they? I hate to correct but you've got yourself a BOY there Carol! :-) (You can tell by the black stripe along the base of the beak). I bet the female isn't too far! :-)

  2. Thanks for the ID Tracy.......and here I was so proud of myself....I looked up both male and female before I posted, and thought for sure I had it right. I am going to correct the post now and give him back his manhood. :-) Thanks so much for letting me know!
