Magellanic woodpecker, Campephilus magellanicus, is a very large woodpecker found along the Andes of Chile and southwestern Argentina; it is resident within its range. They are the largest South American woodpeckers and one of the largest woodpeckers in the world. Magellanic woodpeckers inhabit mature Nothofagus and Nothofagus-Austrocedrus forests, where they feed mainly on wood-boring grubs and adult beetles (Coleoptera and Lepidoptera) as well as spiders. Occasionally, other foods may supplement the diet, including sap and fruits as well as small reptiles, bats and the eggs and nestlings of passerines.
