Northern (Red-shafted) Flicker
A cloudy day provided lighting for a "painterly" view of a Northern Flicker, as seen here...
In this split panel, notice similarities and differences between Male (L) and Female (R)
As I walked around the tree, this female Flicker would disappear to the opposite side!
Finally, the Female Flicker provided me with a full length side view!

Along the Jordan River in Murray, a Female Northern Flicker excavates a nest-hole!
Her head is completely inside the cavity, tearing out the wood.
At a later date, several baby birds would crowd the entrance waiting for food!
