Congratulations to AGeoJO for winning Feature Thread of the Week with 20 votes - View Previous Winners


On my recent visit to Ecuador, I encountered and had the opportunity to photograph various woodpeckers. They share resemblance with our woodpeckers here in North America but they are more colorful, at least most of them are and as such, they do look somewhat different.

Most of the woodpeckers pictured here were captured in the Amazon Basin of Ecuador, where we spent plenty of times on various observation towers. That condition enabled me to capture them from a different perspective. The most unique perspective that way would be from a higher position than that of their perch.

The first 4 images are of a scale-breasted WP. The male was pecking on a trunk at a lower position than mine was and a large bird flew overhead. Instinctively, he looked up or more sideways, to make sure that it didnít pose any danger to him and therefore exposing the head better for me, But in general I was happy to just get an eye level position as their level, which was ideal in #4 of a grooming female scale-breasted WP. As in the case of the cream-colored WP in the subsequent images, which looks more yellow to me than cream , the male has red cheeks. There is no distinctive characteristics between the male and female yellow-tufted WP pictured in the subsequent images. The last images are of a golden olive WP, which resembles closely to our acorn WPs here.

Thank you very much for visiting and please feel free to leave any feedback,
Joshua

I've seen the Yellow-tufted and the Golden Olive is a yard bird here but the others are new for me and stunning as well as beautifully photographed.
