Northern Flicker

Flickers are large brownish woodpeckers with a white rump patch, black spots, bars and crescents.  When in-flight, the undersides of the wings and tail feathers of the eastern version of the Northern Flicker are bright yellow. As you walk through Egret Espy and Holly Path you may see them perched upright on horizontal branches or you might scare one up from the ground because they eat insects like ants and beetles, digging for them with their slightly curved bill.
