Northen Flicker


One finds the Peaks blazing everywhere in North America, although in Canada and in the north of the United States one sees them only in summer. Clear and resounding cries announce their presence. Like all the peaks, the males tambourinent bruyamment on the trees, the posts and the houses to delimit their territory. One easily recognizes the Peak blazing with his white tail which appears when it flies away. Contrary to the other peaks, it often seeks its food on the ground. Thanks to its long language, it succeeds in drawing the ants from their nest.

Length: 32 cm

The Northen Flicker is brown with a tail blanc. It is marked black spots below and it carries a large black crescent across the chest. There are the three shapes of Northen Flicker . At the form DEW, that one finds in the west of the Rock ones, the lower part of the wings and the tail is red, at the GILDED form, in south-west, it is gilded and finally at the YELLOW form the lower part is yellow and the bird has a red spot behind the head as well as a black moustache, which is the case here.

They nourish especially insects, but also of bays and seeds.

Parks, suburbs, arable lands, forests.

The parents dig a hole in a dead tree. The Northen Flicker will use a nesting box fixed at a post planted among the shrubs. The floor must make 170 X 170 mm, the bore must make 63 mm and the height of the walls must be of 380 Misters Tapissez the interior of shavings.

Period of nesting: March at June
Numbers brooded per season: 1
A number of eggs by brooded: 5 to 10
Color of eggs: white
Duration of the incubation: 11 to 12 days by the female the day and the male the night.

Lucky you, beautiful woodpecker! They are the same family, ours that looks like this one, a bit, is mostly a ground dweller.

This is a great image! The DOF and sharpness is excellent.

Thanks for posting

You offer to us a very good and detailed photo of this bird. The poses you get in your posts are really good, and in this one I guess you did not have seeds to offer to it :D
Good work, keep them going.

Really beautiful bird Luc. Well captured and perfect dof. The green background works perfect with the colours in the birds plumage not to forget the pose - well done. Very educational note - thanks a lot.

A great image Luc.

Bella ave Luc y retratado maravillosamente.
La perspectiva elegida (o permitida) es muy buena, como así también el colorido y la agudeza, realzados por una iluminación exacta.
Excelente nota tambien.

Bel oiseau Luc et dépeint admirablement.
La perspective choisie (ou permise) est très bonne, comme ainsi aussi ce qui est coloré et l'acuité, rehaussés par une illumination précise.
Note excellente aussi.

Une très grande définition ici, c'est un oiseau ravissant. Les couleurs sont superbes, j'aime beaucoup l'angle qui nous fait voir cette tache rouge sur la tête et toujours cette petite lumière dans l'oeil.
Un secret entre vous et moi: vous demeurez au Canada et vous m'encouragez à chercher des animaux à photographier. Ici, ils ne courent pas les rues, n'est-ce pas. Un gros merci pour le partage.
