This is the first time we've ever seen a Northern Flicker on the suet basket. In fact, I had read that they don't like to feed from anything that swings.
We've seen them before but only feeding on the ground.
Maybe the single-digit temps had something to do with it.
Shot through a window.

Those are very attractive birds, you're lucky to have them around. I like the color in the pics.

Very nice captures here RVT. If you shot them through a window you must have the cleanest windows in you town. It looks like a European woodpecker too me.

I'll have to mention this to my wife, thanks!

I think the angle of the sun has a lot to do with it as well. I put the sunshade right against the glass and I'm sure that helps cut reflections.

Nice shot. I don't see as many as I used to.

That's exciting! I love watching the action around the feeders and just the locals in general. Always interesting.

This guy is a beauty! Nice capture, regardless of being through the window.
