Nature clicks #189 - Male Northern Flicker

Male Northern Flicker  

A few days ago I reported about a couple Northern Flickers that showed up here around our house (see Nature clicks #188). A day after I posted the photo of the female bird I was lucky enough to have finally the male Northern Flicker in front of the camera. You can clearly see the mustache stripes in his face that make it easy to distinguish the males from the females.
