Pale-billed Woodpecker in Early Morning

Here's a very nice photo of a Pale-billed Woodpecker @ Scott Olmstead and posted here with permission. You can see more of his wonderful photography at this link.  He writes:

This bird, the female, had just emerged from her nest cavity in a rotten trunk.
La Selva Biological Station, Heredia, Costa Rica. March 18, 2010. Digiscoped with a
Canon Powershot A590 IS through a Swarovski ATS 65 HD with a 20-60x eyepiece
and the Swarovski DCA Zoom.

You can hear a Pale-billed Woodpecker doing its diagnostic double knock - two powerful taps in quick succession - here:

Hi,

Superb shot of the Pale-billed Woodies. The optical quality of a Swarovski is really awesome.
