Northern Flicker, reprised/Mr. Robin

I saw two flickers in the birdbath today, both looking quite robust. Very happy to see them.  Here is a picture of one through window and screen, not very good.  But it gives you an idea.  Bird bathers have to contend with the robins, who do as follows:

MR. ROBIN

Mr. Robin
who poops in the birdbath,
must learn, like us,
to preserve his source of strength.
