Had a flicker visiting in the yard this morning while the other birds were getting their sunflower seed fixes.
This little guy spent about five minutes watching a squirrel hang from the roof of the feeder and then decided to try it himself. Hey, if the furball can do it, maybe I can too. Success.
After the trip to the wooden feeder the flicker spent a little time watching the smaller birds at the tube feeder. It was a bit of a stretch but he managed to hang on.
And then he was suddenly on the wing.
