    I just love Flickers! We have a pair that come most days to the suet and black oil feeders. I just marvel at the markings on them! Mother Nature really created a beauty! I however, can not get any good photos, they fly off when I go close to the window.

    They are great birds. This is a bit of a stranger as it has red on its neck and the red moustache, male flicker, that they call an intergrade.

    We don't have anything as spectacular in our garden as your male flicker. We do have wood pigeons that appear to be mating with feral pigeons though that I've been noticing the last couple of years..
