The plumage of this bird is predominantly rich unbarred chestnut brown with a yellow rump, sides, and crest.

The beak is yellow-white, while the wings and tail are black. Males have a crimson malar (cheek) stripe.

Therefore, males and females seem similar, but the male may be distinguished by his red and very interesting stripe.

This is to say, Trinidad’s C. e. leotaudi is smaller, paler, and brighter and nicer than mainland counterparts.

This bird may be found in the following Latin American countries: Belize, Costa Rica, Guatemala, Honduras, Mexico, Nicaragua, and Panama.

Not only, but that, they like well-forested places and other confined woods since they are woodpeckers.

They can, however, be discovered in urban gardens on occasion.

The Chestnut Woodpecker mostly consumes insects (particularly termites) and fruits.

These awesome and cute creatures will also eat table scraps and have been known to raid bird feeders.

They build their nests in dead tree cavities, with the chamber floor reaching up to 30 cm below the entrance.

The typical clutch has three white eggs. They are really wonderful and so heart-warmers!
