I woke up to one thrashing against the sofit in the peak of my house. I had two flickers. I scared the first one off very dark brown with brilliant yellow tail feathers. The second was a rainbow of color.. So beautiful. If not for the glass I could've reached out and touched them. Got a good look at them both when they perched in the birch tree right beside the house before flying off. So beautiful!!!
