[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I took this picture last month in Parque del Este, Caracas, Venezuela.
It was early in the morning and brilliant sun.

If you like see how the Parque del Este looks like, (where I take the majority of my pics), I just uploaded a picture of it on TE.

I was following this birds while they were eating some fruits at the top of the trees, and then I saw big holes in a trunk. When I knocked at the base of the tree, this juvenile woodpecker showed himself and let me took several shoots of it.

You can see another picture of the bird inside the trunk as a workshop here

Handheld with IS, crop, noise reduction, sharpen, and resized for TN.

I want to thanks a lot to Ivan (Argus) who indicated me the right ID of this Woodpecker.

Pájaro carpintero or Spot-breasted Woodpecker

The Spot-breasted Woodpecker (Colaptes punctigula) is a species of bird in the Picidae family. It is found in Bolivia, Brazil, Colombia, Ecuador, French Guiana, Guyana, Panama, Peru, Suriname, and Venezuela.

Its natural habitats are subtropical or tropical moist lowland forests, subtropical or tropical mangrove forests, and heavily degraded former forest.

Woodpeckers gained their English name because of the habit of some species of tapping and pecking noisily on tree trunks with their beaks.

This is both a means of communication to signal possession of territory to their rivals, and a method of locating and accessing insect larvae found under the bark or in long winding tunnels in the tree. The woodpecker first locates a tunnel by tapping on the trunk. Once a tunnel is found, the woodpecker chisels out wood till it makes an opening into the tunnel.

Then it worms its tongue into the tunnel to try to locate the grub. The tongue of the woodpecker is long and ends in a barb. With its tongue the woodpecker skewers the grub and draws it out of the trunk.

Woodpeckers also use their beaks to create larger holes for their nests which are 15-45 cm (6-18 inches) below the opening. These nests are lined only with wood chips and hold 2-8 white eggs laid by the females.

Because the nests are out of sight, they are not visible to predators and eggs do not need to be camouflaged. Cavities created by woodpeckers are also reused as nests by other birds, such as some ducks and owls, and mammals, such as tree squirrels.)

Scientific classification:
Kingdom: Animalia
Phylum: Chordata
Class: Aves
Order: Piciformes
Family: Picidae
Genus: Colaptes
Species: C. punctigula

Bonjour Jose Miguel
Ce pic à tête rouge est une belle nouvelle photo. C'est un bon document, qui nous montre les détails du plumage et qui nous renseigne sur ses moeurs et son habitat. J'aime beaucoup l'attitude de l'oiseau, qui surveille son territoire. Cette image montre aussi l'importance de conserver des arbres et du bois mort dans les forêts.

Hola José Miguel,
Excellent capture of what I think is a juvenile Spot-breasted Woodpecker or Carpintero Pechipunteado (Chrysoptilus punctigula). The Red-crowned has black and white barring on the back.

I'm glad to see a new post from you and what a great one it is, so complete with a link to the place you take your amazing shots and another very well done picture in WS. I like these birds but the ones we have here are not that colorful! You caught an excellent pose from the bird with superb details and very well saturated colors and composition. The catch-light in its eye is beautiful. This is very well done with interesting notes. TFS,

WOW! What a lovely wood pecker, my friend!!!

The color are stunning and you managed to create a great composition with that colored bg at the right of the bird letting us see the environment! He looks a little bit to the Hispaniolan woodpecker I saw in Dominican Republic! You got a great POV and the colors looks very natural to me...

Great job and TFS!

Jose,
Your note is HIGHLY educative. Had no idea these characters
had barbs on their tongues. Had no idea that they actually "mapped" their way to the tunnel. What an intelligent bird. And, I assumed that they wanted to "sharpen" their beaks. IGNORANCE is the mother of LIES.
The photography is OUTSTANDING. I admire your work.

Hi Jose Miguel,

It has been a year that I was hunting for a pecker but no luck so far. Congratulations on this excellent shot. So well cling on the trunk and captured with such fine sharpness and details. Very good image registered by this excellent prosumer. I like your work and thanks soo much for sharing.

Regards,
Jusni
