A week ago we spotted a different flicker in our tree. I went onto Steve Creek's website and found the same bird, but it was in Oklahoma! Must been on vacation since I couldn't find it in my bird book. Other people have been seeing different birds that aren't residents of the area. Is it possible that it's due to rainy and snowy conditions from the midwest and eastern states? Maybe I'll ask one! At one time an oriel visited here when I had my buddelia bush. You just never know what bird will show up if you put out food and have trees for habitat.
