Northern Flicker Staking His Claim

These two male Northern Flickers are battling it out for top spot this nesting season!!
Who will win?

Northern Flickers come from the woodpecker family and these ones pictured are also known as Eastern Flickers and some also call them Yellowhammers !!

We are hoping for another successful hatch in the coming weeks and happy to have front row seats to watch mom and dad prepare the nest and take care of the nestlings !!
