Magellanic Woodpecker


Magellanic Woodpecker, originally uploaded by billy3001.
It's often said that you usually hear a woodpecker before you see it. The Magellanic Woodpecker is the largest woodpecker in South America. I took this photo at Lago del Desierto, on the Chilean border in Argentina.

How did you capture this image?! I love how the bill "disappears" into the tree. It really makes an impression as to how powerful they are - pun intended!
