This incredibly dark Red-Shafted Flicker visited my suet today. I saw it
the other day but wasn't able to photograph it then. Luckily today I
happened to look out and see it today!

What the heck is going on? Has anyone ever seen such a dark Flicker? It
looks like it took a bath in an oil spill. Only by the shape, size, tail,
and tell-tale red moustache could I tell it was a Flicker.

I've posted photos: I hope you can them.I'm new to Flickr!
