Introducing PicidPics [Awesomeness!]

I could spend hours listing all of the fantastic resources available on the Interwebs, but for the moment I want to introduce a new member that is sure to appeal to birders, photographers, and nature-lovers everywhere.

From Martjan Lammertink:

We like to point you to our newly launched website, PicidPics.

With PicidPics we aim to present quality photos of woodpeckers, wrynecks and piculets from around the world. Available photos include striking species as Wryneck, Greater Flameback, White-backed Woodpecker, Black Woodpecker, Helmeted Woodpecker, Magellanic Woodpecker, Cream-backed Woodpecker, Grey-and-Buff Woodpecker, and Great Slaty Woodpecker.

At PicidPics we also present pictures of woodpecker researchers in action in the field. This allows viewers to see researchers whose names may be familiar from publications, and to see the environments these researchers work in. Research pictures may also act as a resource of ideas for tree climbing techniques and woodpecker capturing techniques to other researchers.

Lastly, at PicidPics we present pictures of secondary users of woodpecker cavities, to illustrate the ecological role of woodpeckers as cavity providers.

Photos on PicidPics are available for use in presentations or conservation and education publications free of charge, and for magazines and books against a fee. Please ask for permission before any use.

Over time we will be adding more photos to PicidPics from our archives as well as fresh material, so please stop by regularly to look for updates.

Wow... thanks a lot for that link. Woodpeckers are one of my favorite bird families, ever since I got the family guide when I was like 10 and read it cover to cover :)
