        I just had 2 in my backyard in Ridgewood, NJ pecking the ground just as if it were a woodpecker in a tree. Pretty birds--are both the male and female with the same markings?

            Just found a dead one in my lawn. Wasn't sure what it was, looked it up and found this thread. Thanks for the help. Bismarck, ND

              I have a male northern flicker who keeps coming back to my bird bath, I had no idea what kind of bird he was-looked through bird book after bird book but figured it out after seeing this thread! Such an interesting looking bird!

Maybe the bird only comes to states with "New" in the name.... So New York should be the next place the bird makes its appearance. Then maybe New Mexico and New Brunswick Canada and New Zealand?
                      You forgot Newfoundland. Saw one on my backyard patio this morning. My husband saw one on one of the walking trails near our home.

                        I saw one today. Like a ground wood pecker, busy busy busy. I watched it for a while. Maine Coast.

                          Saw some in our yard in upstate ny, possibly a Northern Flicker. First year they have appeared. Why not it's been one strange year so far.

                            Sure has! I saw 4 Northern Flickers in the same spot here in the Lakes Region of New Hampshire the other day.
