Bird was flying along the 2=track and forest edge.
Here is the first bird image I attempted to take at our hotel near Palenque NP, Chiapas, Mexico. Late afternoon and heavily backlit.
Dryocopus is a genus of large powerful woodpeckers, typically 35–45 cm in length. It has representatives in North and South America, Europe, and Asia; some South American species are endangered. It was believed to be closely related to the American genus Campephilus, but it is part of an entirely different lineage of woodpeckers altogether (Benz et al., 2006)
