Yellow-shafted Flicker ou Northern Flicker, est-ce le même oiseau ? si oui quel est son vrai nom? je ne trouve pas de traduction en français pour Yellow-shafted Flicker. Merci !

Pic flamboyant en français.

Another busy day at PEPTBO! Thanks Jessica Bao for sharing a few of today’s banded birds. Because of the stay-at-home order, our banders are eager to share their sightings with us!Image attachmentImage attachment

Our Bander-in-Charge for 2021 has already began sharing his early bird sightings which includes Northern Flickers, Eastern Phoebes, Song Sparrows, and a Golden-crowned Kinglet (just to name a few).

Hummingbirds are beautiful little birds which fascinate viewers! Here are some interesting facts about them: 

- the average nest is about the size of a half dollar coin (with eggs being the size of jellybeans)
- while resting, the average hummingbird takes about 150 breaths per minute 
- their wings move in a figure eight pattern, allowing them to make very intricate movements (such as hovering and flying backwards) 
- hummingbirds beat their wings approximately 50 times per second 
- they are solitary migrants 

We look forward to when the hummingbirds migrate back to Ontario 🌼
