Golden-Olive Woodpecker Video Stock Footage
The golden-olive woodpecker is 22 cm (8.7 in) long and weighs 68 g (2.4 oz). Adults are mainly golden olive above with some barring on the tail. The forecrown is grey and the hindcrown red. The face is yellow-white and the underparts are barred black and yellowish. The bill is black. Adult males have a red moustachial strip which is lacking in the female. Due to its habitat-mainly montane forests, separated by large rivers-it has evolved into about 20 subspecies. P. r. tobagensis from Tobago is larger and heavier-billed than P. r. trinitatis from Trinidad. Some of the South American races have only very narrow yellow barring on the underparts and Andean birds show a pale eye ring.
