|Here is the Northern Flicker Woodpecker. A flock landed on the ground and I got a few shots low. They seemed to be all males.|
Northern Flickers use a drumming technique to attract a mate. Unfortunately for many people, they often practice on the metal flues of fireplaces.
Hybrids between the red-shafted and yellow-shafted subspecies are common where populations overlap.
The yellow-shafted subspecies is the state bird of Alabama.
A group of flickers are collectively known as a "guttering", "menorah", and "Peterson" of flickers.

Difficult back light as my friends have mentioned already. You still managed to get a decent shot of this lovely woodpecker; good sharpness and nice details. Thanks for sharing,
