Species Description
The White-Bellied Woodpecker is found in the evergreen forests of tropical Asia, ranging from the Western Ghats in India to east Asia; it has many subspecies, and some island populations are endangered or extinct. Also known as the Great Black Woodpecker, it is one of the largest of the Asiatic woodpeckers, and its drums and calls louder than its smaller relatives. The White-Bellied Woodpecker nests in holes in large, dead trees, and it eats insects and larvae, though it will also consume some fruits. The White-Bellied Woodpecker’s toes are zygodactylous, meaning two toes point forward and two point back; this allows it to climb vertically with ease, but makes for awkward horizontal movement.
