Carpintero Lomo Blanco

Carpintero Lomo Blanco by Javier Parigini
Carpintero Lomo Blanco, a photo by Javier Parigini on Flickr.
What an amazing portrait this is of a pair of Cream-backed Woodpeckers! The male is perched on the side of the tree, distinguished by his entirely red head with that black and white oval patch. The female is perched at the cavity, and she is distinguished by her black colored forehead and center of crest, and that rather dramatic looking white patch from the base of her bill tapering to a point below the rear of her ear coverts.

This fine photo was taken by Javier Parigini, and it is posted here with his permission.
