Veniliornis passerinus (Linnaeus, 1766)

The Little Woodpecker (Veniliornis passerinus) is a species of bird in the Picidae family, the woodpeckers, piculets, and wrynecks. It is found in a wide range of wooded habitats in a large part of South America east of the Andes, and generally common. Unlike other similar and comparably sized members of the genus Veniliornis, the Little Woodpecker lacks a contrasting yellow nape. Source: Wikipedia
