This Male Yellow-shafted Northern Flicker isn’t a very common bird where I live. Although they are closely related to woodpeckers, and are in fact, a part of the woodpecker family, they spend most of their time on the ground feeding off beetles and ants. They are one of a few woodpeckers that migrate.

    My eBird username is owls2.0. But it’s on private mode so I can’t share a link to let you see my records.

    We have tons of these in our yard. I still haven’t gotten any at my feeder, though. 😞
