Bird 3: Common or Northern Red-Shafted Flicker:

Sometimes known as the "ant-eater of the bird world", the Northern Flicker is part of the woodpecker family. The red-shafted flicker found around the Comox Valley on Vancouver Island, BC, has cinnamon-coloured head and the male shows a red moustache. There is a broad black band of feathers across the top of their breast, which is speckled with black. The rare time there is a red crescent on the back of it's head. coloration on the underside of the wing and tail feathers, evident when seen flying, reflects the different names of the Northern Flicker: the focal Red shafted flicker  shows bright salmon pink (or some think more orange), whereas the eastern bird definitely has yellow feathers. A beautiful bird.

Bird 4: Chickadee.
