This was a brief encounter with the species as I was about to leave SouthWild Pantanal and go to Chapada dos Guimarães – the rainmaker and the source of Pantanal’s water.

Green-barred Woodpecker (Colaptes melanochloros)
It’s looking for food in the trees right outside the lodge. That’s what’s so amazing about Pantanal – you chill in a hammock, or just open the door of your room and wildlife is right next to you.
