Northern Flickers

We were out in Riverside, California again and went birding with some people at UC Riverside. One of the highlights for us was the red-shafted northern flicker. We get the yellow shafted in NJ.

The Red-shafted Northern Flicker lives in western North America. They are red under the tail and underwings and have red under their tail. Males have a red moustache.

Birding at AgOps at UC Riverside

Here are a few more of the birds we saw at Riverside, mostly at the AgOps area of campus. The western kingbird was at a nearby park. The Western Wood-Pewee was a new bird to us.
