Northern Flicker

If I had to choose a favorite bird, this one would rate high on my list.  I like everything about them.  It is as if the Creator could not decide what they should look like and gave them a dash of everything.  This bird was doing some serious chowing down on the poison ivy seeds.  Some acrobatic moves were required to reach the last seeds.

Beautiful shots of the flicker. They are pretty rare here in central Florida

Thanks Dina. They are year round residents here and considered fairly common but are definitely more visible this time of year as their mate selection period ramps up.
