The Magellanic woodpecker is 36 to 45 cm in length.[1][2] Males of this species weigh 312-363 g (11-13 oz), and females weigh 276-312 g (9.7-11 oz). Among standard measurements, the wing chord is 20.5|to|23|cm, the tail is 13.9|to|16.8|cm, the bill is 4.3|to|6|cm| and the tarsus is 3.3|to|3.9|cm|in.[2] They are the largest South American woodpeckers and one of the largest woodpeckers in the world. Among the species known to be extant, only the non-neotropical members of the Dryocopus genus and the great slaty woodpeckers (Mulleripicus pulverulentus) are larger-bodied. With the likely extinction of the Ivory-billed and imperial woodpeckers (Campephilus imperialis), the Magellanic woodpecker is the largest remaining member of the Campephilus genus.
