Northern Flicker Camouflage Mode Oak Tree
Photograph - Photograph
There are some big oak trees in a wild area that edge a field meadow near me and sometimes the bird around here land at the very top of the tree. This Northern Flicker bird was checking out the bark and looking for insects – you could barely see the bird along the thick branch but if you look at the center of the image you can see it, with its head just under the branch and its feathers matching the tree pattern so I thought it was a good camouflage for nature. We see these birds in north Texas when the weather gets cool for winter time.
Northern Flickers (Colaptes auratus) are in the Woodpecker family. They forage for food on the ground and in trees eating insects, seed and berries with their main diet of mostly ants.
