I don't see how we could call that a yellowhammer other than apparently it is in the wood pecker family. I showed DJ the picture you sent this morning. He said he HAD seen one around here but then he spends way more time outside than I do.

Good to know what the Alabama state bird is, LOL.

Great photo - we have quite a few flickers that come around - they even eat at the seed feeders, though the books say they don't.

Oh he is gorgeous! I have 2 different woodpeckers in the tree outside my window, but I just can't get good pictures. You have 2 wonderful pictures here!

Beautiful - and you managed such a great capture. I saw a cardinal while I was driving, but there was a car behind me so I couldn't stop for a picture.
