The flickers are nesting nearby

I've been stalking the flickers all day - I hear them nearby, see them in the walnut tree, too far away for a good shot. Finally, the male lands on the feeder and I have my camera in my hand!



He looks up for his mate...



...she arrives.



Oops, I've been discovered.

That's a fabulous sequence! Flickers are one of my favorite birds, too. I'm glad you're posting here again!

Lovely sequence! I think my favourite is the one where the male is leaving the feeder! I love the effect of his moving wings!!

Just love this set of shots. What a beautiful bird and how lucky you were to have your camera at hand.
