Red-stained Woodpecker

Red-stained Woodpeckers are locally common inhabitants of the Amazon basin. They forage in the forest canopy and also follow army ant swarms to feed on flushed arthropods (de Hoyo et al. 2002). Erika, James Yost, and I took this photograph in Ecuador using a captive bird inside a photography box covered with blue parachute cloth—look at the blue “sky” in the upper right edge of the photo.
