Gray-faced Woodpecker

Its plumage closely resembles its near relative the Green Woodpecker. It has green upperparts, pale grey underparts and a yellow rump. It has a grey head with black moustache, and the male has a red crown. It has a shorter neck, slimmer bill and slightly rounder head than the Green Woodpecker.

The Gray-faced Woodpecker is classified as Least Concern. Does not qualify for a more at risk category. Widespread and abundant taxa are included in this category.

Gray-faced Woodpecker – after hearing the call, we went on a chase our first morning at Aggtelek, and with Gerard imitating the call, we got super looks as it flew in to a nearby tree. More
