A poor photo of a flicker but his foot is up there. They don't walk like this. Was he shaking his foot out? A flock of flickers is living in the old wild apple trees and come to dig up stuff all over the back door yard. I never knew flickers until I moved to Vermont. I even used to think they were grouse because of the way they fly off and the sounds that they make. You can see my good flicker photos on Flickr.
