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

Flicker, Flicker, Flicker
I have a suet feeder set up right outside my kitchen window, and yesterday when I was working on a project on the table, I noticed a flicker enjoying the suet. As I watched out of the corner of my eye, the flicker seemed unconcerned about my nearness, but as soon as I picked up my camera and turned towards the window to take photos, then he became wary.
Shall I stay or go?
You are getting too close to the window!
Now I am very nervous!
HERE is a web site, well worth exploring for more information on this very handsome bird, the Northern flicker.
