Meet The Flickers

Yes, we have a couple of Northern Flicker woodpeckers that have moved into a tree next to our lobby. I heard the loud “singing” and went out to investigate. I took pictures of the happy couple while they were sitting on a branch by their nest. When a black bird tried to get into the nest, the male woodpecker chased him away and then proceeded to go into the hole in the tree where the nest is to check everything out. I think there maybe some little Flickers in there. The male then sent the female into the nest. He stayed on the outside of the tree and was pecking away. I think he was probably carving a “Home Sweet Home” plaque.
