Littleton, CO (Current Weather Conditions)

Caption: The Flickers don't usually come to the thistle feeders. They will sometimes feed on the ground, but when you're hungry, you're hungry. Here, you can see how he uses his tongue to get the tiny seeds. He stayed a long time! Big bird..tiny seeds. Sorry..snowflakes were sticking to the window.

I have never seen a Flicker use her tongue to get seeds. What a smart bird! Adapt as needed. Great job in photographing the tongue!

Thanks, Heidrun and Arlene! Thankfully, it has
been in the 40's today and there is a lot of
melting going on. Nice change. I hope I heard
wrong, but I think the preview to the news had
something about snow on Monday and Tuesday. Oh,
well, it's not as if we can do anything about it,
right? We take what we get and keep smiling.

About ColoradoKat


I am SO SAD that WU is getting rid of the photography section. This has been the most wonderful outlet for me and my photography and I have met so many awesome people and seen photography that has been amazing on so many levels, because of WU. Thank you for the opportunities you gave us with your site. Man, I will really, really miss this. :-(
