Alpha Challenge - F is for Flicker

 
 
Over at The Craft Barn blog the alpha challenge continues...  This week it's F but it has to be between Fe and Fr. (I wonder if the person who set this is in to the periodic table or has particular affection for Francium or Iron?!)
 
 
 
 
I chose Flicker, specifically the Campo Flicker who has the most beautiful of yellow feathers.


 
 
The science-y bit - actually it's a bit sparse this time as I couldn't find that much out.  It is abundant and of no concern but surely some one must have researched and studied them...  I will have another Google when I have a bit more brain power!!
 

 
 
And here is close up of the handsome chap.  It's another one I've added to my 'really want to see in real life one day' list.
 

 
 
Thanks for stopping by!
You make me smile!!
