Three-toed Woodpecker (Picoides tridactylus)

Appearance:

Shows no red patches in any plumages. Only woodpecker in WP with barred flanks. White stripes extends from behind eye to back and from base of bill to scapulars, but head is generally much darker than in other pied woodpeckers. Crown in male yellow, in female speckled white.

Sound:

Drumming powerful and slow, with each beat clearly distinguishable. Most similar to Black Woodpecker but not as long (1 - 1.4 seconds). Accelerated ending (just the last few beats). Contact call similar to Great Spotted, but deeper and softer. Not very vocal.
