Featured Sanctuary Bird: Northern Flicker

Featured Sanctuary Bird: Northern Flicker

This week's Friday Feathered Feature is the Northern Flicker - These handsome birds are popping up all over our Faville Grove Sanctuary! Though you might expect to find woodpeckers in a tree, they are often stirred up from the ground, foraging on ants and beetles. Their unusual, slightly curved beak helps dig up these little critters.
