These Flickers live in my woods on the other side of the road, but after rains, they aerate my lawn with their large slightly curved bills looking for worms and grubs. They are members of the family of woodpeckers but mostly eat from the ground. They can be found in the trees also pecking at dead wood. If you startle them, they will fly with a sound almost like the dove's wing whoop and you can see their flash of white at the rump just like our white tailed deer. They are certainly handsome birds. They visited yesterday and were eating the berries from the holly now that a cold front had made them a little sweeter. All of these photos were taken from inside and through the window since it is difficult for me to get outside these days and thus they are not sharp photos, but the flickers still look dressed for some ball, don't they?
