[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
With a combined expression of concern, uncertainty and curiosity - a male Northern Flicker Chick peeps out of his tree nest home at the beckoning new world. I noticed that the further they extend their head/necks out of the nest hole - the closer their time is coming to leave/fledge. This chick left the nest about an hour after this snap was taken.

Hi Derek,

Thanks for sharing,

Ciao Derek, lovely composition with nice bird, excellent clarity, wonderful colors and splendid light, very well done, my friend, ciao Silvio

Hi Derek. Great shot with the woodpecker looking like he's answering the door: "Who's There?" LOL

Lights a bit harsh, but your camera still managed to pick up the details and colour well. A very nice framing job as well. This is one woodpecker I can't tell the female from the male. Have a nice day. TFS Trevor

Hello Derek,
I see you too have an eye for the young Flickers. A great shot of this particular bird who as you stated, was probably ready to fledge. Cute facial expression and beautiful natural coloration. Love the tiny catchlight in it's eye.
