Caption: Holding his ground for much of the day, this male northern yellow-shafted flicker endured 25 mph winds and blowing snow to defend his right to drum on this little birdhouse. Hope he attracts a lady bird.

About katy99780


I've lived in Alaska since 1969. I love this wild land. The extremes of the far north shape and affect every living thing. Extremes of weather, elevation, daylight hours, isolation, flora and fauna, nothing in Nature is insignificant.I have a Davis Vantage Pro weather station, uploading to Wunderground, (Turks on the Tundra) the National Weather Service, the Citizen Weather Observation Program and MADIS (Meteorological Assimilation Data Ingest System). "May you have warmth in your igloo, oil in your lamp, and peace in your heart." ~ Indigenous Arctic Proverb
