Picid in Focus: Reichenow's Woodpecker

Reichenow's Woodpecker Campethera scriptoricauda. Aka Speckle-throated Woodpecker. This is an adult male: note the red malar stripe. A poorly-known and range-restricted woodpecker, it is found in open wooded habitats, often in miombo, in Malawi, Mozambique and Tanzania. This photo taken near Mweya, Tanzania, in January 2014 by Gerard Gorman.
