Flicker nest

In an alder and blackberry strip of bush, in Semiahmoo Reserve, looking down on us from a fungus-ridden snag:

A flicker, on the nest.

It was very curious, and never took its eyes off us. Otherwise, it barely moved. We'd never have seen it, except that we were checking out the fungus, a bit greyer than our usual bracket fungus.



  1. Great shot of that flicker. Very sweet.

  2. It was so patient with us!


If your comment is on a post older than a week, it will be held for moderation. Sorry about that, but spammers seem to love old posts!

Also, I have word verification on, because I found out that not only do I get spam without it, but it gets passed on to anyone commenting in that thread. Not cool!
