This scene remainds me Joanna and Michal...well maybe not exactly :-) Great moment and as always quality. Your blue sky still looks great! Very interesting subject and notes, too!

Very nice moment of wildlife. Great details and focur. Beautiful colours,
Thanks for sharing,
Are this the same tunnel than the previous post?
I like so much the clear details and colours got on the plumage.
A great timing to catch this feeding moment.
Well done and thanks to post it.

una perfecta captura,
buen foco y oportuno momento...
agradables detalles y color,
Good capture Livio. It's a real action shot. She looks too big to be able to get into that hole!
Very interesting note too.
I would have cropped off the extra space on the left, and concentrated more on the bird - I've done a quick WS to show what I mean,

What timing! You caught the perfect moment just as the mother was passing the food to the young one. Fantastic! Nice natural colors and excellent details. I like Janice's workshop too.

The action is well captured, and presented in this fine dynamic composition!
Good details in the birds, and it is interesting to study the technique of the big woodpecker...
Well done on the close-up!

Not just a woodpecker clinging to a tree trunk, but a mother feeding the new arrival..What could be better? :)
Nice sharp detail and well exposed with great DOF, POV, and natural colors..
Very well done.

A beautiful capture of this woodpecker feeding her infant. BTW is it a he ore a she. And what is there nursing habit? The details are nice with very good POV and composition. Thanks a lot for sharing.

I finally found time to look at this one. Very nice behavior shot.
However, not punctigula. Brazil is a very large country. Wikipiedia though useful for some things does not in this case give the exact ranges within Brazil. The closest race of punctigula to Minas is in Pará (race guttatus).
Your bird is an adult male nominate race, Colaptes melanochloros melanochloros (Green-barred Woodpecker).

Very well caught action frame of this beautiful bird. It is very difficult to get this bird within the frame of reference perse its swift rotational movements on the tree trunk otherwise. Bravo.
