We have a "family" that has been around for about 15 years. Last fall, one took to perching on the roof right above our den and announcing its presence every evening between 10:00-10:30. :)

Meadowhawk

Gorgeous picture, robryan! In partial answer to lyndee's question: Se Alaska, sw. Canada (ie lower west coast of British Columbia), w. USA to Guatamala. Generally a very shy bird and yet they have a piercing call that announces their exact location! I've had them at my suet feeders - very pretty.
I'm with patsquire on this one! :)

Beautiful picture! We have have the Yellow-Shafted Flicker (Northern Flicker) in New England. They are a delight with their "flicka-flicka-flicka" song.

Love the vivid colors

It hardly seems possible to take a shot which so perfectly shows the varieties of plumage on these birds.

beautiful image and puzzle

Looks like a person could see them in Montana. I will be going through part of that state this summer. I shall keep an eye out for one!

robryan

Thanks patsquire - however this bird was created, it's a work of art!!
lyndee - they are found in the western parts of North America.

This is one of the many, endless reasons I believe that evolution IS creation. While the evolution of life is an ongoing fact, pure, stunning beauty such as this just couldn't happen accidentally. Call it intelligent design if you like (I call it art), who says the designer's day is 24 earth hours long?

I don't wish to give offense to any believers or nonbelievers. I think creationists and evolutionists are BOTH right.

robryan

He's a beauty isn't he!! Thanks chookie.
I'm not sure lyndee - thanks.
My pleasure Shirley - thanks.
