Another Sign of Spring

I am always reminded of Spring when I hear the cry of a Northern Flicker or see them flipping through the dead leaves of winter.  This one that we saw yesterday has taken it a step further and is actually digging deep into the dirt after something, notice the dirt on the end of his beak and the hole in the ground.  Flickers, who are members of the Woodpecker Family, differ from the rest of the family in that it is quite normal for them to be spotted foraging on the ground.
