Cream-backed Woodpeckers: Two Videos

 Originally posted 8/21/2010 - backdated to organize posts by topic.

Enjoy two videos recently posted by baco1970 that show the striking Cream-backed Woodpecker in Brazil.

The first video shows a male bird that has a red crest and red head with a small oval of black and white at the lower rear edge of its ear coverts.  The second video shows one male with two female birds whose crests are a bit longer than the male's, with black from the forehead up through the central area of the crest.  Females birds also display dramatic looking moustachial stripes.
