Seven-Years Ago (28-May-2007) — Colorado

Spring Nature in Colorado.

As I was walking to my car from the Boulder Marriott Residence Inn I saw this brown bird hunting insects. I didn’t recognize it, and had to look it up in my “National Audubon Society Field Guide to North American Birds”. It is a Northern Flicker which is a woodpecker. Image taken with a Nikon D2xs camera and 70-200 mm f/2.8 VR lens (ISO 400, 280 mm, f/4, 1/50 sec).
