During the bitter cold spell we had in early December, my friend Amy, who helps me with things I can no longer do myself, looked out the window and said excitedly, “What’s that big bird on the feeder?”
From the way she said “big” and her excitement, I thought it must be a hawk or an eagle, something really big. So I grabbed my binoculars and found myself looking at a northern flicker. Of course they are big, 12 to 15 inches long, compared with the chickadees and juncos that were also there. Flickers are truly beautiful.
