Photos on the journey #482- Northern flicker with a heart.

WEAR YOUR HEART ON YOUR SLEEVE OR IS IT TAIL ?

We have had these northern flickers around our yard for a good 4-6 weeks. Their parents hatched 5 of them and I think they were certainly put here for my entrainment. They squawk, yell and wallow  around our yard in the mornings and evenings. They behave much like mockingbirds and love to harass our three cats.

I discovered on a close up, that they have a row of hearts along their lower body and a couple to finish the pattern on the tail. A nice finishing touch.

  1. Charming pictures, he looks much like a European Starling we raised for 12 years from birth when he fell out of the nest on our porch; no feathers, eyes not open, fed him with an eye dropper…………Ralph sings, talks, and thinks he runs the place. Even the cat liked him. So much fun!
