Northern flicker

Colaptes auratus

Description:

Flickers are fairly large woodpeckers with a slim, rounded head, slightly downcurved bill, and long, flared tail that tapers to a point. They appear brownish overall with a white rump patch that’s conspicuous in flight and often visible when perched. The undersides of the wing and tail feathers are bright yellow, for eastern birds. The brown plumage is richly patterned with black spots, bars, and crescents.

Habitat:

Radnor Lake State Natural area
