Northern Flicker, Yellow-shafted (Colaptes auratus)

Taken along Loop Road in western Miami-Dade County, Florida, USA. Having located the nest Magda and I returned to this location for more shots of these birds,

This is the same male Northern Flicker (Colaptes auratus) that I posted two days ago. Here he seems to be looking for invertebrate at the top of a dried out sable palm. The male and female were both nearby but the female was the most shy of the pair and did not make herself available for photos.
