I like woodpeckers and I like to think sometimes they do like me. This little male Checkered Woodpecker allowed me to get very close -can actually see me and the road behind me in his eye-. Taken in Buenos Aires, we have a nice reserve not far from downtown with loads of species, it's actually a RAMSAR site. Of all the woodpeckers there, this one is the smallest one (less than 15cm).
