“Thunk, thunk, THUNK!” “Bonk, bonk, BONK!”
Yesterday my wife, Marilynn, and I woke up in the morning twilight to a strange knocking sound. Marilynn got up and looked out our bedroom window to find the source. About 30 feet away on the side of one of the big Douglas Firs in the common area behind our house was a very busy Northern Flicker. I scrambled around for the camera and got the following video of this rather handsome fellow.
