Northern Flicker (Eastern Yellow-Shafted)

This male, adult Northern Yellow-shafted Flicker was seen feeding on ants in one of our Tamarack Trees along our driveway. Always striking in its appearance, in the background the rich yellow of Coneflowers in my flower garden highlighted the yellow on its undertail; enhancing its beauty even more. Flickers belong to the Woodpecker family.
