Lineated Woodpecker - Dryocopus lineatus erythrops (male)
Português: Pica-pau-de-banda-branca (macho)























"The ochraceous tinge to the usually white moustachial and neck striping is a well-known feature on some birds of the erythrops race of Lineated Woodpecker. Interestingly, this colour variation is also present in the similis race found in Costa Rica and north into Mexico. The belly carries a similar colouration. It was not long ago scientists were using this colour morph as a supporting feature in the proposal to elevate erythrops to full species status"
