Cream-colored Woodpecker

Celeus flavus (Statius Muller, 1776)

The Cream-colored Woodpecker (Celeus flavus) is a species of woodpecker native to South America, from Colombia and the Guianas to Peru, Bolivia, and the eastern part of Brazil, including a southeast Brazil coastal strip. It is colored creamy yellow, except for the wingtips and tail, which are much darker. Males also have dark rings around their eyes. It has a large crest that is always raised. It eats mainly tree ants, although it does eat other insects and some fruits. It is not known how the Cream-colored Woodpecker nests, although it is believed that they nest in holes in trees. They do not migrate. Source: Wikipedia
