Picid in Focus: Hoffman's Woodpecker Melanerpes hoffmannii

This monotypic species is restricted to Central America, in Honduras, Nicaragua and Costa Rica. It is, however, often locally common there in drier, open, lightly wooded habitats. It is also often seen and heard in and around settlements. This bird photographed in Costa Rica by Robert Tuff.
