Pretty Boy - Northern Flicker
Photograph - Photo
Photographic artwork by Cindy Treger. Photographed near Lake Meade, East Berlin, PA. This Northern Flicker, Colaptes auratus, was looking for food during a snowstorm. They are the only woodpecker that feeds on the ground on a regular basis, digging up ants and beetles with their slightly downcurved bill. On this particular day, this Flicker was looking for seed. He is sporting his moustache, along with his black scalloped plumage and speckled breast. There is just a trace of his red crest and black necklace showing in this photo, but he still makes for a "Pretty Boy."
