Over a foot of snow brought the northern flicker to the suet dish! Having landed on the porch railing his beak came up with snow!

Love this !!
I have been following Regina’s postings on attracting birds to her feeders. I was amazed to see a flicker at the feeder. After communicating with Regina, I am going to try similar food mixture to entice other species i.e blue birds. Downy, Red bellied an Hairy woodpeckers feeding on their usual preferences insects and would love to have flickers join the avian crowd at my winter feeder.
I have been following Regina’s posting about her bird feeders and seeing the flicker attracted to her feeders. Flickers have visited my yard spring through fall. I will be following her advice and hope to entice flickers to my feeders in the winter
Great shot & bird!! Good luck!
