What kind of a bird is that? Looks like he is a bit heavy for your feeder, he has pulled the seed holes closed. I have those feeders too...

That's a Northern Flicker, the Red-Shafted western version. Out east, we have the Yellow-Shafted variety. A woodpecker, although they spend a lot of time on the ground eating insects, and probably spend less time drilling trees than other woodpeckers. Ours like to sit in my aluminum gutters and drum on them during mating season. I attract them to my suet feeder:

Jo, I believe it is a male Red Shafted Northern Flicker. He is a bit big for the feeder, but does manage to get food out of it.

They're pretty birds, for sure!

I think one of their cousins, a Little Birdy, told me something about it being Jim's birthday today... If that's the case, then Happy birthday Jim!

Jo, I do believe you're right! Happy Birthday, Jim!

In celebration for this special day, something unusual from me... an image!

Stall spin on takeoff; or was that a rejected approach?

Hippo birdies, Jim!

Jay I like everything about that except perhaps the color balance between sky and airframe...something about it says 'shopped'.

Suspected load shifting during takeoff.

Somewhere between photoshop and flickr the lines in that one are getting a little weird

Something for the video guys to drool over. These guys were doing the super slomo work for the broadcast. Red Epic HD with the new Canon C Series 30-300 2.95-3.7:

The only thing that jars me a little about that image, Jay, is the text under it. The difference in vertical spacing between lines 1-2 and then lines 2-3 is too much to look uniform, but too little to look deliberate. Somehow it just looks untidy and "off" to me. A little crowded, too.

The image itself looks beautiful.

That's oh-so-most-definitely a keeper, Jay.
