Congratulations to researcher Martjan Lammertink who won first prize in November 2011 for the category Forest Birds of the World with this photo of a juvenile male Magellanic Woodpecker that he took in Nahuel Huapi National Park, Argentina. The photo contest was organized by SEO/BirdLife, the branch of BirdLife International in Spain, to commemorate the International Year of Forests 2011.

The fact that the winning photos were selected from a total of 1,050 images submitted by 305 professionals from 13 countries is a testament to how attractive and charismatic Magellanic Woodpeckers are as forest ambassadors.
