a large woodpecker, perched on a branch against a blurred background. The woodpecker is a tannish brown color, overall with a black triangle on its breast. Its chest is covered with black spots, and its tail is yellow on the underside. On the side of its beak, dropping down below its eye, is a black triangular shape.

The northern flicker or common flicker, Colaptes auratus. A beautiful woodpecker and is one of the few woodpecker species that migrate. When I see them, they are often on the ground hunting for insects.
