[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I would like to welcome each and every one of you that view my photographs. There is nothing that I would rather be doing more than taking these for all to enjoy. Thanks for looking and please return....

The Northern Flickers are a fall regular to my ripening dogwood berries. I look for their visits every year. Since I am originally from Alabama, this bird means more to me as it is the Alabama State Bird. I have the luxury of living in an area that has an abundance of these beauties. This variety of the Northern Flicker is also called the Yellow-shafted Flicker since the underside of its tail feathers and wings are yellow. This photo was taken earlier in the morning than I usually like to take them. As you can tell, this photo is really full of bright light and is hard to tone it down.
