Northern Flickers - two species were at the suet feeder today

Sunday, March 28, 2021


Yellow-shafted Northern Flicker - yellow tail feathers


Red-shafted Northern Flicker - red tail feathers

Both are large woodpeckers. Usually "Yellow-shafted" is found in eastern and northern North America, while the "Red-shafted" is found in western North America. That is why the yellow-shafted one is considered rare in my area on Vancouver Island, BC.

    I love watching birds. I live in Virginia, so we don't see those here. Thank you for sharing!
