I opened the blinds this morning to see a yellow-shafted flicker busily stabbing at the ground. I was surprised because I usually associate this behavior with heat-of-the-summer parched ground when they come in pairs and families to dig up ants. I was curious to see what it was rooting for. So it was with a great sense of satisfaction that I saw it bring up a big fat ugly cutworm out of the leaf litter and gobble it up!
When I left the window, it was still at it. Hope it finds/gets rid of more of those pesky grubs!
