A pair of Northern Yellow-shafted Flickers were surprise visitors to the bird feeding area. As these birds feed primarily on insect they are not attracted to our offering of various seeds.
While waiting in the pop-up blind I described in the previous post the female flicker dropped in to perch momentarily on the broken poke stalks.
A moment later she hopped onto a branch and began watching the standing tree beside her perch.
As she continued watching I noticed the male scaling the standing tree searching for a meal. The male was partially concealed by branches and never gave me an opportunity for a good photograph.
In less than two minutes the encounter was over as the pair flew away but in that short time I had captured eighteen images; three of which you see here.
