Lifer 3: A Buff-Necked Woodpecker (Meiglyptes tukki). She stopped on this tree to rest for one minute.
Great shots of a lovely bird with subtle but very complex markings. I don't have a good sense of scale for this photo. How big is she?
male or female?
This is female because of absent of red sub-moustachial for male species.Beautiful and sharp images.
The Field guide says that she's about 21cm ( 9 inches) in length. Tabib is correct, she's a female.
