Northern Flicker (Colaptes auratus): Red-Shafted

Northern Flicker (Colaptes auratus)

Northern Flicker (Colaptes auratus)
This woodpecker was spotted around Green Lake in Seattle, Washington in the afternoon of May 31st. I posted about flickers before, but I had to post again with some better pictures. Based off my birding experiences, northern flickers are the woodpecker's most ubiquitous member in North America. Lucky for us they are so pretty too. You can read about and listen to some of them here.
