When Woodpeckers Attack!!!

Northern Flicker (not flickr) Northern Flicker (not flickr) This female Northern Flicker (correct me if I'm wrong) was right outside my window this morning and served as my wake-up call. I have seen and heard her several times lately. They have a very distinct and piercing call that almost sounds like that of a Kestrel. She was quite enamored with the telephone outside my balcony and sat there talking for about an hour or so. There was a male on the next pole over whom I couldn't get a good picture of, but it appeared they were conversing back and forth.
