-- or even two flutes, it seems.  At the end.

 

However, for the personnel listing under Songs, it lists only:

 

John Lennon: vocals, acoustic rhythm guitar
Paul McCartney: harmony vocals, bass
George Harrison: sitar, 12-string acoustic guitar
Ringo Starr: bass drum, tambourine

No flute in Norwegian Wood, maybe youve mixed up that with You've Got To Hide Your Love Away or something else.

Woops -- my bad:  it's that other Lennon song that always reminds me of "Norwegian Wood" -- namely, "You've Got To Hide Your Love Away", which I see is noted by this site under the "Songs" tab appropriately to have among its instrumentation:

 

"Johnnie Scott: tenor flute, alto flute"

Nevermind Norwegian Wood. I swear that you can hear a flute on If I Needed Someone, right after the guitar solo.

It's on the left channel right as they're signing "time to spend". Does anyone know what I'm talking about?

For the musicians out there, 'Norwegian Wood' certainly lends itself to other instruments and arrangements...I perform it with a violinist, and we expand a section of the minor change in the bridge to a more open jazz waltz, with a few twists...It is a wonderful melody and chord change, and the 3/4 time is always a nice refresher
