I have never seen birds like these before either. Thanks for posting a first. I looked them up and I think they are called White woodpeckers (Melanerpes candidus).
What a great POV witht the two of them lined up on the tree trunk. Sharp details and great composition, not to mention the beautiful BG. : )
TFS : )

Hi Livio, I´m not drunken. I really see "two". ;-)
I never seen this kind of woodpecker! Congrats, that´s a brilliant picture. Very clear and great sharpness. Great colours and excellent POV. Your note is excellent too. Thanks for posting.

It's very nice shot. Absolutely different woodpecker for my eye and two at same time.
I think composition here is very good and both birds are in the same position and looking into same direction. Must be something interesting. Excellent sharpness, colors and DOF.

Livio you post your shoots too frequently, I can't keep up.
I missed this one, its just as good as the one you posted next. As I said a beautiful bird and well captured here too.
Brazil has many beautiful critters and you keep showing us new critters all the time, well done.
