Northern Flicker & Juvenile Wilson’s Warblers

It was a short and sunny backyard birding day today, although the sun was quite harsh I was still able to spot a few birds standing under tree shade.

Flickers are cool, they just are!  Their colors and mismatched patterned feathers make them really stand out from other birds. The ones I’ve seen around my yard are usually on the ground hunting for bugs and they usually don’t mind me taking a few photos if I stay in my place with very little movement.

Hiding under the trees in the shade also led to my first warblers captured on camera in my yard. I welcome the bright little ladies and hope to see them again soon, they are such a delight to watch as they hardly stand still for a second!
