Crimson-crested Woodpecker - Metropolitan Park Panama_MG_2278-291, originally uploaded by fveronesi1.
I love the clarity, colors and composition in this photo! It's a beautiful female Crimson-crested Woodpecker in the Metropolitan National Park, Panama very close to Panama City. The male's head is virtually all red, whereas females - as depicted by the bird in this photo - display a whitish area around the bill that extends into a broad black-bordered white moustache. So the female Crimson-crested Woodpecker has a moustache and the male has no moustache at all. Imagine that!
Check out this photo of the male bird by the same photographer: See it here.
