Flicker Animal Totem: The Natural Drummers

Happy birthday to the Flicker! For those not familiar with SunBear’s Earth Astrology, those born from June 21 to July 22 have the flicker (related to the woodpecker) as their birth animal totem.

We can learn so much about our natural selves from the animal world, including how to be more efficient and balanced with our every day energy.

Did you know? The Northern Flicker is one of the few North American woodpeckers that is strongly migratory. Flickers in the northern parts of their range move south for the winter, although a few will stay rather far north. What the flicker (as opposed to a woodpecker) feeds from the ground and like the woodpecker is known for its intense “drumming” on natural and metal objects as a form of communication and territorial defense. They make their communication loud and heard … at times up to a half mile away!

What do you think? Where can you add a little flicker medicine to your life?
