In my posting from the other day, I mentioned seeing the Northern Flicker hanging up-side-down onone of our small bird feeders.  The thing is, I didn't have the camera nearby to catch him. 

Fortunately yesterday, when I heard the now familiar whistle and my glance out the window confirmed he was indeed out there, I was ready for him.

Hanging by a toenail, happily poking out his share of the seeds, he seemed mindless of any shadow or movement my camera and I might have made.

No hanging upsidedown today, but we were delighted to catch his pose. And, we love that he considers our yard a regular stopover now!

Wishing you a beautiful day,



  1. I'm not a robot but starting to feel like!
    Great shot!

  2. beautiful glimpse of nature at its best!! ^)^linda

  3. Eat hearty, little fellow! Nice photo...

  4. How wonderful that you got a second chance to get your flicker. What a great shot.

  5. Sometimes I know just how he feels, hanging on with my toenails.

  6. What a pretty fellow! I don't believe I've ever seen one before. If you don't mind my asking, what state do you live in? I'm curious about the habitat.
