crimson-crested woodpecker (Campephilus melanoleucos)

English: Male Crimson-crested Woodpecker, Orinoco Delta, Venezuela
Date August 2008

The crimson-crested woodpecker (Campephilus melanoleucos) is a very large woodpecker which is a resident breeding bird from Panama south to northern border regions of Argentina, and on Trinidad. The crimson-crested woodpecker somewhat resembles the pileated woodpecker of North America, but may be confused in its own range with the lineated woodpecker. It is one of the largest woodpeckers in its range, though the higher elevation powerful woodpecker is roughly the same size. Order: Piciformes, Family: Picidae, Species: Campephilus melanoleucos (Gmelin, 1788)

The crimson-crested woodpecker (Campephilus melanoleucos) is the most widespread species of Campephilus. It occurs regularly from Panama south to northern Argentina, including across the Guianan Shield and throughout Amazonia. It is a very large, robust woodpecker with a large red crest. The male is distinguished from other co-occurring large woodpeckers by the combination of barred underparts and an entirely red head that lacks facial stripes, and has only a suggestion of a black-and-white "slash" below the eye. Females have a black front to the crest, and a very broad white malar stripe that continues into the white strip down the neck.
