Just a little bird from a real winter country

I hate to be the one to break it to you, but pBase and the "Red X" strike again....however, a quick right-click, copy and paste in a new browser and I can say...

"Darn nice Flicker, oh Boobie-Wan-Canadian"....

I saw a couple today, but they were about 50 feet away and 40 feet up in a tree. Looked nice, and if I want to crop out 80% of the frame they look like Flickers......

What was in the background on the left side? It really "blurred out" nicely, nice color touch. You were pretty darned close, at 70mm, eh?

Yves, I just love this one. I saw one of these guys a week or so ago, but couldn't get nearly this close. :?

These are very attractive birds and you have caught this one very well. :wink:

Regards,

Beautiful shot as always Yves.

Just to be pedantic though, I think this is a Downy Woodpecker rather than a Flicker. Might be a Hairy, but the spots on the outer tail feathers suggest a Downy. Janet could confirm or correct of course. :)

Love the sharpness and the clarity - can count every feather. Something I never seem to achieve.
