EDITORS COMMENTS
. In this snapshot by John Cancalosi, we witness the incredible ingenuity of a male Gilded Flicker as he proudly poses in his luxurious abode nestled within a majestic Saguaro cactus. This avian architect has masterfully carved out a cozy nest hole, not just for himself but also for future tenants! These woodpeckers are true desert dwellers and can be found gracing all corners of the arid Sonoran Desert in Arizona. With their vibrant plumage and striking red moustachial stripe (sorry ladies!), these flickers bring an extra touch of elegance to their surroundings. But here's where it gets interesting! Once our dapper flicker moves on to greener pastures, other birds eagerly move into his vacated residence. It seems that these saguaro nests have become quite the sought-after address among feathered friends. When they're not busy playing landlord, Gilded Flickers spend much of their time scouring the ground for ants - talk about having unique taste buds! These resourceful birds truly know how to make the most out of life in the wild. So next time you find yourself wandering through the enchanting landscapes of North America's Sonoran Desert, keep your eyes peeled for these talented woodpeckers and their extraordinary homes. Who knows? You might even catch them hosting an open house party with some ant-filled hors d'oeuvres!
