Woodpecker puffer

Woodpecker puffer

The Woodpecker is a puffer Picidae family piciforme. Also known as Red-Yellow-headed Woodpecker and stick-yellow.

It measures about 17.5 cm long. The male has his crown and the red neck, with the sides of yellow head; the female has the crown of yellow-olive head, the side head yellow and just a little red neck.

Scale trunks and branches, removing them bark in search of insects.

Nests in holes dug in dead tree trunks.

Common in high forest land and floodplain. One of his songs is like a very strong snort, this being the origin of its popular name. Live alone or accompanying mixed flocks of birds in the middle stratum or near the canopy.
