One of 13 species in the genus Colaptes, Campo Flicker occurs throughout a wide swath of eastern South America, from eastern Brazil to Bolivia to eastern Argentina. Its relatives include North America’s Northern and Gilded Flickers and Cuba’s Fernandina’s Flicker.
Gallery member Nancy Norman shot this engaging portrait of a Campo Flicker at a lodge in Brazil’s Pantanal region. She used a Canon 70D and a 100-400mm lens and posted the photo to our World Gallery.
