Listening to the Birds

Working in my garden this morning, I spent a fair bit of time just standing still, watching and listening to the small birds coming and going in trees. I even saw a hummingbird taking a drink from a small dish, meant for the birds.

Northern Flicker but the one I saw yesterday was not blue – is there such a bird as the Southern Flicker?
