Woodpecker Quest - Campo Flicker

I have been doing a fair bit of research connected to my quest to see all the woodpeckers of the world. To paraphrase Robert Cray "so many woodies, so little time." There are some real gems to find but this bird in the photo here is high on my agenda. Don't ask me why, it just is. My number one used to be Ground Woodpecker but I sorted that one in South Africa last winter. This one is a Campo Flicker Colaptes campestris and I am going to have to get to South America to see it.
