Perching Northern Flicker

Perching Northern Flicker

I saw this Flicker while I was at Carburn Park. Initially it was on the ground but it spooked into a tree when I approached. It didn’t seem to mind me being close while it was perched, so I was able to get very close and make a number of images.
