Robust Woodpecker in Flight

Originally posted 11/2/10 - backdated to organize posts by topic.

It's rare to find a photo of any Campephilus woodpecker flying, so I am grateful to have permission from Fábio Manfredini to post his photo of a male Robust Woodpecker in flight. He took the photo in the beautiful Atlantic forest of Parque Estadual Carlos Botelho in Brazil.  With its wings extended, you can see the many pale chestnut spots across this bird's flight feathers that are not visible when the wings are folded.
