Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

A mid-sized woodpecker with a golden-green back and gray underparts. The crown is red in males and plain gray in females. Usually shows a large red patch on the center of the belly. Found at middle elevations in woodland, savanna, and cultivated areas. The range overlaps slightly with the very similar African Gray Woodpecker; Mountain Gray is distinguished by the lack of barring on the wing and undertail and by the large, deep red belly patch. The main vocalization is an agitated series of rising “k-k-kree” calls.
