Some new photos

Here are a few new photos of birds in flight:

Northern Flickers are one of the larger woodpeckers in the region.  Flickers are brown with lots of dark spots.  Note the black malar ("mustache") making this a male.

Blue Jays often flock up in the fall and fly over during the day.  They are often noisy while flying.  Their flight and color pattern are distinctive.

Black-capped Chickadees do not usually fly long distances, but when they do, their black and white head pattern makes them easy to identify.
