A leafy green and white make for an attractive background in this photo of a male Red-necked Woodpecker in Ecuador.   This bird is one of the less seldom photographed members of the Camp. genus, so special thanks to Forrest Rowland for granting permission to post his photo here. 

In this recording from xeno-canto, you can hear the bird's loud call, wing sounds and some tapping:

The Red-necked Woodpecker is another species within the genus that does double raps, or double "knocks." In this recording, you can hear a series of loud, crisp double raps accompanied by some other fantastic jungle fauna sounds.

Excellent Bill. I loved to hear the voice of this woodpecker that I will probably never see...
