Wild Fidalgo: Northern Flicker Paradigms
From Wild Fidalgo, is this Northern Flicker (Colaptes auratus) red-shafted, yellow-shafted or a little of both? How many distinguishing characteristics can you spot? Is this a male or female? Some of the first photos caught at a new BirdCam station are posted at Wild Fidalgo and provide an exercise in Northern Flicker taxonomy.
