I have a beautiful pair of Northern Flickers visiting my backyard suet feeders, several times a day. This morning, the female arrived first, while her mate waited patiently in a nearby tree. She took her sweet time getting to the block but he didn't fly over until she was through [the last photo shows the male feeding]. See. Chivalry is not dead.
My name is Kimberley [@BCBirder on Twitter] and, when I'm not working, or taking care of my two sons, I love to spend time outdoors, observing and photographing birds and wildlife that can be found in and around Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada.
My blog primarily focuses on our fine feathered friends, with an occasional frog, turtle or squirrel thrown in for good measure.
