He has become a regular visitor. Here he is sitting on my deck rail. Isn't he a beauty? Is it the same one that was in my chimney a few weeks ago? He hangs on the side of my birdfeeder and eats the suet that most other birds have completely ignored. A friend of mine sent me a link to some native American lore about birds, specifically Flickers, and what a visit from them means. I'll try to find it and post a bit of it - it's fascinating.
