Imperial Woodpeckers

This rather large image befits the Imperial Woodpecker, the largest woodpecker in the world.  According to Wikimedia Commons, this chromolithograph appeared in The Auk in 1898, and the artist was John Livzey Ridgway (1859-1947) an American illustrator and brother of ornithologist Robert Ridgway.  Public domain image.
