Gerard Gorman has put out a call for submissions of top-class photos of woodpeckers from anyone who would like to be involved in a new book provisionally entitled Woodpeckers of the World: a photographic guide. if interested, please visit his Woodpeckers of the World blog and view submission details on the upper left sidebar.

The photo you see above is of a juvenile Pale-billed Woodpecker. It's extraordinary because it's rare to find photos of young birds in this genus. Dick Tipton took this photo at the Calakmul Biosphere Reserve in Southern Mexico on Feb 10, 2008.
