Colaptes auratus Links:Colaptes auratus - on Animal Diversity Web
from site: This woodpecker ranges from Alaska eastward to Quebec, then south throughout the entire United States. Northern Flickers are migratory and winter in the southern part of this range and in northern Mexico (Palmer and Fowler 1975, Farrand, Jr. 1988, Winkler et al. 1995).
Emberizidae Links:Emberizidae family on Wikipedia
from site: The Emberizidae are a large family of passerine birds. The Emberizidae family probably originated in South America and spread first into North America before crossing into eastern Asia and continuing to move west. This explains the comparative paucity of emberizid species in Europe and Africa when compared to the Americas.
