Andean Flicker

Colaptes rupicola d'Orbigny, ACVMD 1840

The Andean flicker is a South American species of woodpecker. It is found in grassland, shrubland and Polylepis woodland at altitudes of 2,000–5,000 metres (6,600–16,400 ft) in the Puna ecoregion. Together with the campo flicker and ground woodpecker, it is one of the few largely terrestrial woodpeckers. Source: Wikipedia
