I know! I check on species maps on ebird, they show up all over my area, but I just can’t find one.

Listen for them! They’re quite loud. I often won’t even actively look for birds, depending on what I’m trying to find, and will only use audio clues to know what’s around and where the bird might be.

Look on the ground.  And they seem to love cemetery lawns.

The drumming season has started (at least up here) so plenty of noise going around. They often go and drum on the metal exhaust pipes (chimneys?) on top of houses. So if you here a metal rattling sound, it might be one.

The neighborhood flickers sure have shown a liking for my chimney. Boy does it get annoying quick when they start hammering on that metal pipe.

It usually takes me a while to find photos of specific species since most of my photos aren't tagged or organized other than by date. My choice of photo was easy to find this time, I knew one of my earliest photos was still one of my best so I just jumped right to the beginning of my gallery and there it was just a few rows down from the start. Taken back in 2009.
