Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

Small, relatively drab woodpecker; olive-brown above and barred brown and white below. Both sexes have a yellow nape and a red rump (although this can be difficult to see). Males also have a red crown. Look for singles or pairs foraging at all levels in lowland forest, second growth, and mangroves. Often follows mixed-species flocks.
