I watched these two Northern Flickers one afternoon for quite a while. Both had the red malars of the male Red-shafted subspecies. There seemed to be a lot of posturing, and the dominant and submissive roles kept changing. The one on the right flew off first, and the other one left about five minutes later. I live in town, and it still amazes me that I get birds like this visiting my backyard!
