- Forward two and a half somersaults in the pike position...
Pied Kingfisher getting ready for the dive. I love watching these birds fish, they’re fantastic to see whether perched, hovering or beating the heck out of their current meal... And they are very successful hunters, so you don’t usually have to wait too long for that to happen!

Northern Flickers (Colaptes auratus) have always seemed amazingly skittish to me. I have nary few photos of them as a result. A shame, since they're quite the lookers!
While it is a woodpecker, it is more anteater than its wood-burrowing cousins. You will often find these birds on the ground, digging through the dirt and licking out ants with their barbed tongues.
Interestingly, in eastern North America, you'll find Flickers with yellow underwings. In the west...red.
