Storm preparation

If I knew a storm was coming and I was a bird I too would look for a hidey hole.

I have a feeling this is a young yellow shafted flicker. The coloration was strange and not just due to back lighting. It didn't have the strong red patch at back of head and it let me get close. That's very different for a flicker. They're normally skittish birds. It studied every hole in this dead tree, went into each hole, popped out again.

My pals have asked, "What do the birds do?" They know what to do. They've survived for centuries. Fingers crossed that beautiful trees are not blown down.
