Northern Flicker

This Northern Flicker, a member of the woodpecker family has already migrated to somewhere warm for the winter. But when they were all here, I kept seeing two adults going back and forth from their nest, so I found a spot and waited and waited. I was getting the pictures of them but still wanted something better. The sun was slowly making its way down, just before flying away from the nest, this adult decided to perch on this broken branch. With this background and the light, I could not have asked for a better set up for the photo. 

Until next moment,
