Colaptes is the genus of woodpeckers which contains the flickers. The scientific name means “the pecker”, Latinized from the Greek verb kol├ípto “to peck”. Probably the most well-known member of this genus is the Northern Flicker (C. auratus), known in parts of the southern U.S. as the “Yellowhammer”. The bird is the state bird of Alabama, and the state’s nickname is the “Yellowhammer State”. flicker.mp3 (58 downloads)
