Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

Small greenish woodpecker of the dry and semi-humid forests at the base of the Andes in NW Argentina and southern Bolivia. Male has a red cap, while the female’s head is grayish with pale spots. Distinguished from the very similar Little woodpecker by Dot-fronted’s pale auriculars and pale spots on forehead. Also tends to be less vocal and less gregarious than Little Woodpecker. Calls a quick, full “squit!” given individually or strung together in quick repetition.
