A migration journey up to 20,000km!  Amazing! 🤩

📣 It’s Feathered Friends Friday 🐦 here at Appalachian Mountains Joint Venture! Please help us celebrate 🥳 this week’s feathered friend by coloring 🖌✍️🖍 the page below and then showing off your artwork #AMJVFeatheredFriends 😁

Simply download and print the image file or join the new AMJV Feathered Friends Coloring Pages group, where the coloring pages are posted as PDFs: www.facebook.com/groups/AMJVFeatheredFriends

Today is all about the Northern Flicker, a fairly large woodpecker that shows off bright yellow shaft feathers (in eastern birds), especially when in flight. The Northern Flicker’s ringing calls and short burst of drumming can be heard echoing through the Appalachian Mountains in the spring. To learn more about the Northern Flicker and hear its various calls, visit: www.audubon.org/field-guide/bird/northern-flicker

Have you seen (or heard) a Northern Flicker? Comment below! We’d love to know when and where you saw these beauties, and we want to highlight and give thanks for the conservation work of engaged landowners, organizations, and agencies that help these and other AMJV Feathered Friends in the Appalachian Mountains (feel free to tag any not mentioned!) 🙌👏!
