Northern Flicker - Young Male - Donnelly, ID

This young male Northern Flicker looks out of the nest hole while waiting for his parent's to deliver a meal. It will be his last day in the nest as the entire brood will leave the nest the next day to start living on the wing.
The stump and the bird are lit from the blue sky overhead, giving the whole bird a blue color cast. I liked the effect so I didn't change it.


  1. What fun, what a delightful looking chap. I had a Yellow-shafted Flicker startle me this morning. It had gotten in a garden stand and was I expect hiding from the rain and when I dashed out, it flew out and just barely missed flying into me;) have a great weekend!
