Latin: Colaptes Chrysoides
The Spirit Bird associated with the Strong Suns Moon (June 21 to July 22) is the Flicker. Flickers are woodpeckers. They are considered the drummers of natural world. They play their song on dead limbs, tin roofs, and wooden houses, sometimes to extract insects and sometimes for the sheer joy of playing. During mating, flickers present an especially magnificent display of their musical talents.
