I so love to see pairs of birds interacting . . . . . . and this is definitely the
time of year to capture them with your camera.
Spring, the birds and the bees etc!!!
I also enjoy learning new facts about birds and yesterday was one of
those moments. I have never been able to get a photo of a pair of
Northern flickers actually feeding on the same suet cake . . . . . . . but as
luck would have it, I looked out the dining room window just at the right
moment. The light was perfect to show off these beautiful woodpeckers.
The real surprise though was seeing the female sticking out a long tongue!
I had absolutely no idea these birds have tongues which they use to lap up
ants. . . . . and as a tiny 'rake' to get to other foods, such as the goodies
embedded in the suet.
Garden chores are at an all time high right now..........so I'm off and
will return here soon.
I just had to share these beautiful birds who mate for life!
