A couple of days ago I noticed an interesting Northern Flicker on
Powell Butte (Multnomah):

It seems like that kind of bill would limit some activities that I'd
have thought were innate for Flickers, such as drumming or building
nesting and roosting cavities. I can imagine it could pose some
feeding challenges too.
