Northern Flicker (male) in North Vancouver


My son and I took a large number of pictures of this male Northern Flicker as it was eating its lunch on a grassy area in North Vancouver. Although this one is far from perfect, it still pleases me, since the bird’s black “bib” and red “moustache” stand out so clearly.

Taken next to the North Shore Spirit Trail at King’s Mill Walk Park in North Vancouver, BC, Canada on November 10, 2014 with a handheld Nikon D5200 and AF-S Zoom-Nikkor 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6G IF-ED  (ISO 400, 300mm, f/5.6, 1/1250). Not baited, called in or set up.
