My Friend, Flicker

21 Mar

He visited us last year and he’s back this year. We had first been alerted to his presence by a persistent tapping, audible inside our house, oddly enough louder in the basement than elsewhere. It took us a while to determine that a Northern Flicker had been pecking at our chimney cap. This morning I finally caught him in action. One video records his rat-a-tat-tat. The other records a call he sends out. Can’t explain his behavior but it is amusing nonetheless.DSCN3777
