Thank you for the video. Almost half of newly hatched northern flickers die in the first week after leaving the nest. The adults will introduce the young to ant gathering locales in the post-fledging period but regurgitation remains an important means of sustenance. The clip shows a female feeding the young but males help out also.
Several people on facespace have posted pics of a Snowy Owl that's taken up residence in West Seattle the last few days. I wonder if it's a sign there could be an irruption this year? Last time there was a Snowy in W. Seattle was winter 11/12 and there was an irruption that year. I have a better camera now than I did back then.
