Black-cheeked and Hoffmann’s Woodpeckers: Donde Cope, Gaupiles, Costa Rica — Black-cheeked Woodpeckers are everywhere in the Caribbean lowland rain forest where we spend the first several days of our yearly trip to Costa Rica, and we generally see both Black-cheeked and the more wide-spread, but less abundant (in my experience) Hoffmann’s at both Dave and Dave’s Costa Rican Nature Park, and at Cope’s tiny village sanctuary. These shots are from a few moments apart at Cope’s, but in very different light. 🙂 Sony Rx10iv at 541mm equivalent. Program mode with wildlife modifications and multi-frame noise reduction.
