WET FLICKER - Rain in New Hampshire brought this male Northern Flicker to the yard. Sibley calls the Flicker the most un-woodpecker-like woodpecker, whose favorite food is ants. So, it is common to see Flickers hopping in the yard after ants. A very dry Summer made ants scarce in the yard - so the recent rain had all of the yard bug-eating birds on the hunt.
