A Northern Yellow shafted Flicker for Mellow Yellow Monday

Each morning, while visiting my son in his 'forested back yard' home in the city, we were never sure of what what might see or find in and around his backyard. One morning a male Northern Cardinal was sitting on his deck table, another day a Gray Catbird was on the deck railing. In all we saw three rabbits lunching on clover on his back lawn area, but the focus of this post is the beautiful golden yellow seen on the tail of a yellow shafted flicker which had found the top of a fence post to its liking, and definitely to my liking as my camera focused on its beauty! Please double click on the photo below to be able to better appreciate this bird's golden beauty.Got pictures with yellow that you would like to share? Why not post them on Mellow Yellow Monday, a delightful meme that focuses on the colour yellow?Just clink here: to access this meme

Great shot. Glad that your son had all those interesting things for you to enjoy. I have never seen so many goldfish as there were in the other entry. Helen
