That last shot is nice and probably the last thing a lot of small critters ever see.

I'm assuming the Northern Flicker was a Red Shafted by the range described. I actually came really close to figuring it out. I saw a Gila Flicker was really close in looks (because my books shows more of the Northerns with a distinct red mark on the head mine didn't seem to have) but obviously the wrong habitat.
Thanks again. you're now officially "that one bird guy on that one site you go to" according to my wife.

It is the red-shafted flicker variety. They do look a lot like the Gila WP. If you were in southern AZ, I would have looked a lot closer at the photo. I have some photos of northern flickers in the hand someplace, can't seem to find them now.

Nice Cooper's hawk Joel. :clapsmile

Are the Flickers common in the midwest? When i used to work vineyards, we'd see a bird that looked alot like that during harvest time. They seemed to really enjoy eating the harvest. Would a woodpecker do something like that? The resemblance is uncanny.

Flying foxes are cool. My wife loves bats , she would have a pet flying fox if she could. That spider is creeping me out though.

My Oldest (now 14) feeding my buddies Giraffe "Mr. Stilts". Have to scan the pictures of the Ring tails and Lemurs and Three toed sloths they had. His brother had a 6ft Monitor and a 14ft Albino Python I have some pictures of as well.
