The Birds From Brazil – Campo Flicker

English: Campo Flicker

Portuguese: Pica-pau-do-campo

LB: Colaptes campestris


I missed out on getting a usable image of the Yellow-fronted Woodpecker, which I considered to be the most striking bird I was able to observe in Brazil, but on my last day out shooting before heading for home, I was able to spot and shoot these guys.  Huge, active and vocal, these were very much reminiscent to the Flickers in North America.
