Green Woodpecker: terrestrial

A Green Woodpecker Picus viridis in a typical pose, foraging on the ground. Though some other species, such as Black and Grey-headed Woodpeckers, do feed on the ground Green Woodpecker is without question the specialist in this niche in Europe. Photo taken in Hungary by Phil Briggs.
