Blood-colored Woodpecker

Veniliornis sanguineus (Lichtenstein, AAH 1793)

The blood-colored woodpecker is a species of bird in the family Picidae, the woodpeckers, piculets, and wrynecks. It is found only in the Guianan countries of Guyana, Suriname, and French Guiana, on the Atlantic shoreline region in a narrow coastal strip, 140–180 km wide. Its natural habitats are subtropical or tropical moist lowland forests, subtropical or tropical mangrove forests, and heavily degraded former forest. It is a fairly common species with a restricted range, but the population seems stable and the International Union for Conservation of Nature has assessed its conservation status as being of "least concern".
