I feel blessed as I begin enjoying Thanksgiving Day. I caught a glimpse of a 
flicker in the early AM sunlight and immediately lost view of it. After 
watching a few minutes and not seeing it take flight, I changed windows, and 
there it was in the shadow of the hugh cedartree trunk next to the driveway. It 
was flikcing about right at the base of the trunk, perhaps after ants?  Due to 
the shadow, color was difficult to make out but as I watched it moved out and 
around the trunk and was joined by another!  I believe by the field guide they 
are yellow-shafted flickers and my day is made.  Hope you have a great day and 
great birding!  Regards, Paula - now at near Tides Inn in Irvington
