I've been watching a very handsome flicker here at my window feeder from
behind the cover of a large sorrel plant. Gorgeous plumage when seen from
just a few inches away. Very intricate and many shades blending into each
other. The breast spots so detailed. Would love to be able to trace the
genetic evolution of plumage. And that bill is quite a tool. Would put a
Hairy to shame.
