The blond-crested woodpecker (Celeus flavescens) is a species of bird in the family Picidae, the woodpeckers, piculets and wrynecks. It is found in Brazil, southeastern Paraguay, and extreme northeastern Argentina. A small disjunct population occurs at the Amazon River mouth and upstream, including the southern part of Ilha de Marajo. The ochre-backed woodpecker is often considered a subspecies.
Its natural habitats are subtropical or tropical moist lowland forests, subtropical or tropical dry shrubland, and heavily degraded former forest.
In eastern and southeastern South America, the blond-crested woodpecker ranges in eastern and central portions of the cerrado; it is also in most of the caatinga. A small range of the bird, (disjunct), occurs at the mouth of the Amazon River and upstream for 800 km in the Amazon Basin; the range also covers the southern parts of Marajó Island.
