Northern Flicker

Northern Flickers were quite plentiful in the Magic Hedge area in mid-April. We're now seeing them on Northerly Island and in Grant Park as well. First the Flicker was posing for us in the Magic Hedge's big dead tree. Next, I found a pair doing a little Flicker Dance (I would have shot it as a movie if I'd known how to do that with the new camera.)
