Common Flicker

Look who came to see us today:

 

I have been seeing this Common Flicker for several days, but today was the first time I got to photograph him.

Our American Smoke is particularly beautiful this year.

 

Yesterday, Steve’s brother came to help him move some farm implements and other crap.  While he had help, I convinced Steve to get my 25 yr old couch out of this house.

 

Steve wondered if a bear might want to sleep on the burn pile!  He will light it when it isn’t so windy.

I don’t have a replacement yet.  Just empty space in my living room.  I went to a local furniture store that is having a “going out of business sale”.  The couch I saw 2 mos ago for 600.00 was marked at 1200.00 today.  Half off means it is now 600.  Great sale, huh?  I didn’t buy anything.  Have 2 more stores to check out in the coming days/week.

    I have never seen a flicker before. Thank you! And your smoke tree is fabulous. As for your couch, not so much …although I have a couple of love seats that aren’t nearly that old … and they look wretched!

    I’ve seen a LOT of furniture stores in this area doing that the last couple months. Seriously, who do they think they are fooling? No better way to lose my faith than pull a stunt like that!
