In Native American legends, Flicker is frequently associated with fire and often given credit for medicinal powers. He brings good fortune with him wherever he goes. You don't see or hear much of him in literature or popular culture. We're not certain why, but think that it may be because so few people in the modern world ever get to see him. They might hear him drumming, but they rarely actually see him. Count yourself very fortunate if you manage to see him and very, very fortunate if you get a good view! He is definitely worth noticing!
