Birds in the Front Yard

Northern Flicker by Allan J Jones Photography

I was out puttering in the front yard and heard pecking at a tree in the green belt, so I went and grabbed my camera. I finally located the Northern Flicker that was banging away on a dead tree. I’m hoping for it to nest there and give me the chance to catch some photos of young. We’ll see.

While I was shooting the flicker, I glanced up and saw this eagle flying overhead. So I took a photo of it too.
