Crimson-bellied Woodpecker in Altos del María, a report by Carlos Bethancourt

Our good friend Faustino ‘Tino’ Sánchez just sent me a picture of this beautiful and rare bird seen at Altos del María on Nov 16, 2010. Tino was leading a Naturetrek trip with Eliecer Rodriguez, they were looking for a Brown-billed Scythebill when Tino heard the Crimson-bellied Woodpecker.
Although Crimson-bellied Woodpeckers range throughout the Caribbean from Bocas del Toro to Kuna Yala, on the Pacific Slope they are unknown west of Cerro Azul in Eastern Panama.
