Still praticing on bird shooting and of course patience, I was lucky to run into these birds. The northern flicker was digging in the grass for worms and I was laying on the ground. Dang the grass is still wet from yesterday rain.

excellent. Which lens? Can you get us a shot of that heron entering the nesting box? Now that would be a great shot :lol:

Hi Greg, these pictures wera taken with a Sigma 100-300mm f/4. I don't think the heron could enter the box since he is too big for the hole :) . These boxes wera installed around a lake for tree swallows nesting. Thanks for the kind words.

Hi Dao! I luv the shots of the flickers, especially made the perspective in getting to the ground. yes I know wet grass, yuck, but it was worth the effort. Well done!!

That has always thrown me off about the Northern Flicker.......it's a woodpecker and more times I see them digging in the ground than in a tree!! Nice shots!! :D :D :D
