Northern Flicker
« on: June 17, 2019, 04:01:25 PM »
I saw this bird on the Hackensack River Walkway near the Rothman Center at FDU-Hackensack. It refused to stay on the same side of the tree as me - even when it was 20-25' up, but I'm fairly persistent.

I had never gotten a chance to photograph this woodpecker before. I wasn't sure what kind of woodpecker it was until I got home, looked it up and confirmed it with The Record's bird writer, Jim Wright.

I'm not even sure I'd ever heard of a Northern Flicker before.
