I am a native in this world And think in it as a native thinks

Sunday bird blogging

My only good picture from Friday -- a most beauteous Northern Flicker.

Unlike most woodpeckers, they mostly forage on the ground, rather than in the trees -- or at least, so the guide books tell me. I'd only ever seen them way up in the trees before this, and so never got a decent picture. But this guy was rummaging around on the ground exactly the way a flicker is supposed to, and he posed most obligingly.
