Picid in Focus: Imperial Woodpecker

Here is a species Campephilus imperialis that I have not got a shot of in the wild. In fact, in recent times no one has even seen this wonderful woodpecker, the largest picid known to exist. Endemic to Mexico it is, sadly, probably extinct. Photo of a male taken in the Vienna Natural History Museum.
