Northern Flicker

I was taking a walk along a fire control road in the Croatan National Forest yesterday. Primarily I was doing a little scouting for signs of Whitetail deer or Black bear with thoughts of doing some big game photography in the near future. However, since I was noticing quite a few birds I set my camera up appropriately but adding a flash. I figured if a bird presented its self in the shadows I could flip the flash on for a bit of added light. A little bit into my hike this Northern Flicker perched fairly close to me and not extremely high up. I turned on the flash and fired a couple of frames before this lovely bird decided to move on. I hope you enjoy the photos.
