Chestnut-colored Woodpecker (Cleus castaneus)

We were expecting to see this large woodpecker, whose coloration is somewhat hypnotic. It did appear at the feeders, but with low light levels. Still, just seeing it perch and peck at the coconut in upright position was wonderful. Furthermore, we were able to see a complete family of about 5 individuals, where mom, dad and the fledgings were almost the same size. The following picture was taken on July 8th, 2017 during another Photography Workshop at Laguna del Lagarto Lodge with To The Wonder.
