PIC OF THE WEEK: 04/10/17 • PREVIOUS WEEKALL 2017 PICSNEXT WEEK

Where: Richmond, VA
Notes: The Flicker is an unusual member of the Woodpecker Family in many ways. The most obvious being its multi-patterned appearance with horizontal bars on its back, spots on its belly, black crescent moon on its upper breast, topped off with a red dash across the back of its neck. The black mustache mark at the base of this male’s beak, is absent in the female. Another difference is that it comes in a yellow-shafted version here in the east and a red-shafted version in the west. The Northern Flicker has been difficult for ornithologists to classify and is currently considered two color versions, or sub-species, of a single species. Though present year-round in most of North America, is also one of the few Woodpeckers that migrates. A population that breeds throughout Canada each summer, travels to points south of the border each winter. Another oddity is that prefers to find food on the ground, especially ants. Years ago I witnessed a nest that was dug into the ground. It was a perfectly circular hole about six inches deep. They typically excavate their own cavities in trees, like other woodpeckers do. Flickers also have a distinct, evenly rattled, loud call. This difference makes them easily identified by sound. The variety and uniqueness of each species filled our world with variety, beauty and amazement.
