Saturday/ the woodpeckers are here

The pair of northern flickersĀ (Colaptes auratus) that I sometimes see here around my house, came by late this afternoon.

The woodpeckers were looking for insects in the bark of the Douglas fir for a while ..
.. and then settled for some of the bluish-black berries on the mahonia at the base of the tree. Humans can eat these berries as well, but I will leave them for the birds.
