Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

Small woodpecker of open forest and forest edge. Note size, pale eyes, and broad-striped head pattern. Darkness of the crown varies; palest in northern and peninsular India and darkest in Sri Lanka. Where it overlaps with Gray-capped Woodpecker, note the more “blocky” head pattern and pale eyes of Brown-capped. Gives a short chittering trill that rises and falls quickly.
