Campo Flicker (Colaptes campestris)

Campo Flickers are typically seen surveying the cerrado from a suitable perch on top of a tree. They normally feed on ants or termites on the ground so, at least in behaviour, it is similar to the Green Woodpecker (Picus viridis) of Europe.

It is a species that takes advantage of deforestation where termites invade low-grade and overgrazed pasturesand is found in eastern and central Brazil and into Bolivia and Paraguay.

The generic name Colaptes is derived from the Greek word for a chiseller.
