Laced Woodpecker – adult and immature male

posted in: birds, Morphology-Develop. | 0

A number of different woodpeckers inhabit the mangrove forest and I saw Greater Flamebacks, Sunda Pygmy Woodpeckers and Laced Woodpeckers.

I saw two of these handsome Laced Woodpeckers (Picus vittatus). The image above shows the adult male.

The rest of the birds show an immature male with black in the cap posteriorly (best seen in in the image below). The mantle of this immature bird is also lighter with yellow flecked into the olive-green.
