Here's a female Crimson-crested Woodpecker with a wonderful expression, looking a little joyful and perhaps even a little crazy!  This photo is © Alexandre Curcino.  It was taken in Niquelândia, Brazil and is posted here with permission.  Niquelândia has one of the largest reserves in the world of what metal?   Find out here.

Wonderful photos and account of Woddpeckers of Americas, I should do the same with Hornbills of South East Asia too.
