Cinnamon Woodpecker

Cinnamon Woodpecker: Canopy Tower, Panama, July 2022 — Among the most frequent visitors in the canopy around the Canopy Tower is the Cinnamon Woodpecker. It was always in the area, and always visible from the observation deck, working the tree tops. During my 5 days at the Tower, we only saw females, but I am sure the males were around. In North America we are used to our woodpeckers in basic black and white, with a maybe a touch of red, so the Cinnamon is a striking bird. Sony Rx10iv at 600mm and 500mm equivalent. Program mode with my custom birds and wildlife modifications. Processed in Pixelmator Photo and Apple Photos. The photos were taken on two different mornings in differing light. ISO 2000 and 640 @ f4 @ 1/500th. Plus 1 and .7 EV exposure compensation.
