Kia hora te manno
Kia whakapapa paumamu te moana
Kia tere te Karohirohi

May the calm be widespread
May the sea glisten like the greenstone
And may the glimmer of summer dance across your pathways

This young Flicker took a nap while waiting it's turn at the feeder.

That is precious. I adore the Flickers, they look hand-painted! A Flicker really did a number on a custom louvered cedar vent-cover on the side of our neighbor's house, just destroyed it nearly overnight. Guess he just really wanted to get in there! Powerful birds. They say that Flicker's main diet item is ANTS, interesting, no? Great photos! Cheers, Bonnie

How did you capture that image? You are so lucky to find a sleeping Flicker in the wild. I am impressed in your photo. You’re a good photographer.
