This photo of a male Crimson-crested Woodpecker shows the white feathering at the base of the bird's bill very well along with the black that extends from its neck to upper breast. Thanks to Larry Kay for granting permission to post his photo taken in Ecuador here.

Like Chris say, he's a beauty, a real stunner! He looks to be the size of a pheasant. Colors and pattern are amazing Bill, thanks for posting, cheers, Linda
