Another of Nature’s Lawn Aerators at work: the Flicker

A visiting Northern Flicker digs in the grassThe squirrels and earthworms have been pocking little holes in my lawn for weeks now, supplementing the frost heave of winter in aerating the grass. Another of nature’s lawn aerators has been visiting lately: the Northern Flicker, a woodpecker that drills into the ground in search of little ants and grubs, two other little beasties that stir up the dirt. As long as I don’t kill off the ants and grubs and worms with pesticide, I don’t have to do a lick of work.
