A Pair of Flickers

This pair of Northern Red-shafted Flickers spent a good amount of time hanging out in the birch tree yesterday.  I got the impression they were waiting, waiting for it to warm up, waiting for spring, waiting for what happens in spring, I don’t know, but they seem to be waiting. It’s easy to tell the male and female apart on flickers, the male has the red mustache.
