A resident bird found in the forests of mountains all over Japan. Much larger than the Great Spotted Woodpecker. number seems to be small. A friend of the so-called woodpecker. It is characterized by a red belly.
I see great spotted woodpeckers all the time, so I tend to ignore them, but I don't see white wooded woodpeckers very often, so I get a little excited when I meet them. Compared to the great spotted woodpecker, it is quite large, so the pecking sound is loud enough to be easily spotted.
