I noticed a few odd holes in the lawn and in the garden path this morning and wondered what critter made them. I didn't know who the culprit was until this afternoon when I spied this li'l fella drilling with his handy woodpecker beak. This is a young Northern Flicker (red shafted). The adult flickers have a nice solid black crest across the breast, but this guy still has his baby speckles.
Do you like the red mustache?
I'm thinking about drilling for.... ANTS!
Drill baby drill!
