|The White Woodpecker, Leuconerpes candidus, is a species of woodpecker (Family Picidae) found in South America. This woodpecker is a native of the grasslands of Brazil, Bolivia, Paraguay, Uruguay and Argentina. Specially fields with trees, palm groves, orchards.|
28, 5 cm.
Iris witish; bare orbital area yellow. Mainly white with a black mantle connecting to streak behind the eye; tail black; yellow nape patch and midbelly.
No other woodpecker shows as much white. A conspicuous woodpecker that almost always is in the open; often perches on snags. Rather social, occurring in small groups of up to 4-5 individuals and seeming to occupy large home ranges. Regularly seen in long flights high above the ground and, notably for a woodpecker, its flight paths are relatively level (not bounding). Eats mainly fruit, also some insects.
Call ultra-distinctive and far-carrying, typically a sharp nasal âkweeyrâ, often given in flight, heralding the approach of a group of these spectacular, unique woodpeckers.

Fantastic shot of this white woodpecker, this is a new bird for me. I love it's bright yellow eye ring and contrasting white, black and gray feathers. Excellent in-flight shot showing fine detail and just the right amount of exposure.
Une magnifique prise en vol, de bonnes couleurs et dÃ©tails intÃ©ressants particuliÃ¨rement vers l'Åil.
