Wednesday Wings - Yellow-Shafted Flicker
The Yellow Shafted Flicker is a rare guest at the feeding station.
It's always a lone female and she doesn't appear until late February.
I imagine her dreaming of eating her favorite food, ants, while she has some suet to make do until spring.
This picture is reposted from last year when I was lucky enough to get a good shot of her yellow shaft.
