Fernandina's Flickers

I was on a walk with my parents on a Sunday afternoon after we had had a picnic. I took the shortcut back, and since my dad really likes birds, we decided to play bird calls using a smartphone app. Eventually, a few birds responded and we headed to their direction. Surprisingly, it was a pair of Fernandina's Flicker birds, which I have never gotten close to before.
