Yellow-shafted Northern Flickers


In the summer we had an adult flicker bringing two young to our suet feeder often. It seems the three are still hanging out and enduring the winter together. All winter we have had 3 flickers at the suet together. They call to each other in that fun flicker way and always seem to fly off to the same tree together. I imagine very soon they will be looking for mates and starting families of their own. I hope they remember me when their young need a little suet energy to grow.
