Daddy Delivers Dinner

Northern flickers chose a tree in our front yard for their nest this year. It appears they successfully raised two young ones, one of which shown here. Dad did most of the feedings that we witnessed, but mom was never far away. Both of the babies fledged and the nest vacated within days of capturing this image.
