Early one morning this pair of northern flickers was having quite the battle to determine dominance over my yard by pecking at each other.
It was -33 and this flicker was sitting on the nest box all fluffed up trying to get a little warmth from the sun, just as I took the photo he spread one of his wings out!

The sun was shining through the window but I didn't want to miss the chance of taking his photo.
This Northern Flicker was busy throwing sand in the back yard. We have ant hills and they eat ants.
