[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
A few days ago I had posted a picture of a Northern Flicker at one of my feeders. This is the same flicker resting in the tree. I am posting this just to show the back of the the bird and the red spot on it's head. AS I said before, to me this is one of the most beautiful birds we have in our area.

This will be my last post of the Flicker for a while.
I hope to move on to something else tomorrow.

Enjoy and thanks for stopping by. - Bob

Hi Bob.It pays to see the back some time so we can see the feather markings. You have taken this one with good detail and bright natural colours. We can alos see the red V mark on the neck. well done TFS.

Hello Bob,
Thanks for giving us a different view of this beautiful bird. The red spot on the back of it's head actually looks like a V.
I've never noticed that before!!
Thanks again,
