Flicker back again.



He was here just minutes ago. Still a bad shot taken through a grubby window. He's very nervous so I have to be careful. Anyway, a little better picture than yesterday. He's just lovely.

They are such nervous perverses thatvitvis hard to get their picture! So beautiful though.

You can see what a colorful and wonderfully marked bird he is, I think you got a good shot--is he feeding on suet?

Tricia said...

What a little beauty... So pleased he came back and you could get another picture...

(and so glad himself was OK... payphones can be confusing in a foreign country...)

Cicero, what you said, lol.

Dixie, no he's not feeding on suet. The white is a bit of snow but there are seeds there that he's eating.

Tricia and Andrew, hope he sticks around so I can get more pictures.

Stewart, now don't go giving me ideas, lol.

What a handsome feller (gal?). I love that little red band on the back of the head.

What a beautiful bird! We have common Flickers here, which look sort of the same but no red spot on the back of the head. Sadly, I've not seen one for a while.

I'm so happy Himself is all right! You have my sympathy for the two hours you had to wait. I know from experience how harrowing that can be.

I still have an old rotary dial phone, too. You're so right, they're tried and TRUE!

Glad to hear himself made it to Spain. Missed connections are such a pain... due to airline delays I have missed two in the last six months and been stranded overnight in Atlanta as a result. At least he was only a couple of hours delayed.
