Northern Flicker Photos and Information

Guest Author - Lisa Shea

The Northern Flicker Colaptes auratus is found throughout North America. This woodpecker is very shy but can be lured in to a suet feeder. It has a brown back with black stripes, and a beige front with black spots. Its head is grey, and the male has a red spot in the center of the back of his head.



There are two varieties of the northern flicker. The red-shafted has salmon colored underwings, while the yellow-shafted has yellow underwings.

The flicker is a very shy bird and races off at the mere thought of noise.
