Bird of the Day: Campephilus

Once in a while, a perusal of the infamous massive Ivory-billed Woodpecker thread on birdforum, which has long since devolved into something undescribable at over 11,600 posts, yields something useful. Like this post, highlighting videos of almost every extant Campephilus found on youtube. So here it is, a tour of that wonderful genus of woodpeckers:

Powerful Woodpecker (Campephilus pollens)

Crimson-bellied Woodpecker (C. haematogaster)

Red-necked Woodpecker (C. rubricollis)

Robust Woodpecker (
C. robustus)

Crimson-crested Woodpecker (C. melanoleucos)

Guayaquil Woodpecker (C. gayaquilensis)

Pale-billed Woodpecker (C. guatemalensis)

Cream-backed Woodpecker (C. leucopogon)

Magellanic Woodpecker (C. magellanicus)

Ivory-billed Woodpecker (C. principalis)
