A Northern Flicker drums up a storm on an electrical transformer in downtown Cloverdale.

This feisty Northern Flicker was heard drumming away on an electrical transformer on a power pole on 56A Avenue at 175 Street last week. This large variety woodpecker likes to pound on hollow metal surfaces to announce its territory and to attract a mate. Good luck, little guy!
