This is a bird I rarely see in Sacramento. Maybe because they don't much hang out in Land Park. Or maybe just not my yard. But yesterday I was very excited to have discovered a Northern Flicker prancing around my back yard. I could not get a better photo than the one I'm showing you here because I was on the phone, like usual.
Ha, like a client asked me today where is my office. I told him it's in the sky. He wanted to know physically which office do I frequent or do I simply work out of my house. Yes, like any other agent, I work out of my house. It became apparent I was facing a struggle dealing with an important phone conversation and my urge to shoot a photo of this bird, both happening simulataneously.
