Hello Tweets,

Just one hour ago, a male flicker was feeding at our suet. On a whim, I took a second look through my binoculars, and lo and behold - he was an Intergrade! He had the Red-shafted Flicker's red malar, but the heart-shaped red nape mark was thin but visible.

I got a few pictures, which I will upload to Flickr later and post a link. I look forward to learning more about the status and occurrence of these birds in Puget Sound! There are mysteries and curiosities around us everyday.

Good birding, Joshua Glant
