A Surprise Flicker

I've been working a lot lately, which has really cut down on my birding time. While packing my car this morning, I heard the unmistakable call of a Northern Flicker coming from somewhere in the yard. Much to my amusement, he was feasting on the suet. While I know there are overwintering birds in the state (and even in the general area), it was nice to see in the yard. Picture bird #55!

I won't be working much this week, so keep an eye out for updates. I also have all weekend to bird. Now to just find a way to get to British Columbia...
