Northern Flicker at home
Lens: DA* 300 Camera: K5IIS Photo Location: Sherwood Park, Alberta 
Posted By: daacon, 06-10-2015, 06:03 AM

A week ago or so this fellow was walking his dog and saw me with the camera. He mentioned 'there's a bird down there (pointed) that lives in a dead tree you should get a picture'. Well the pointing was pretty general and there are scores of dead trees all with holes in them. The next 3 or 4 times out here I kept looking but saw nothing. We went for a walk last night and volia ! The little lady (I assume) decided to reveal her home which was very close to the path so I was able to get a few snaps.
