[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Red-crowned woodpecker (Melanerpes rubricapillus rubracapillus) from the edge of the mangrove swamp north of Crown point on Tobago.

It is rather common on Tobago and we saw them a few times but they are totally absent from Trinidad. A beautiful little woodpecker that is also called Little Red-headed Woodpecker.

Hello Bengt,
A wonderful shot of this pretty Red-crowned Woodpecker. It looks very similar to our Red-bellied Woodpeckers we have here in Ohio. Excellent eye contact and superb detail has been achieved. Great job!!
