Black-cheeked Woodpecker

We found Black-cheeked Woodpeckers nearly everywhere in Costa Rica. This was my best photo, taken during our morning jaunt on 14 July 2017 near the Laguna del Lagarto Lodge. This woodpecker is common from southeastern Mexico to western Ecuador and is found in open woodlands, wet forests, and old secondary growth. The diet consists of insects, fruit, and nectar (Wikipedia).
