Camera Critter #72

A couple of weeks ago, I stepped out my door, looked up towards the wiring strung between my place a neighbors, and thought, I have never seen a female and male Northern Flicker together before.

So I went back inside the house, got my camera and hoping the birds were still there, stepped back outside. Sure enough, they were still there. So I took a photo, which got attention, and off they went to a different perch, far away from the strange man with the big Canon.
