Spring is advancing – the Northern Flickers are back! March 19, 2010

We are constantly reminded of the many reasons that we named our ranch Wild Echo, and after a long winter of silence, it’s a particular thrill to hear the exotic calls of a Northern Flicker echoing across the mountainside above camp.  We have flickers in abundance here on the ranch once the snows have retreated and a pair of them always nest in the snag right next to the cabins (last year they shared the same snag with a pair of bluebirds and a pair of sapsuckers), but there’s something special about the first fearless flicker of the year :).
