Description

Dinopium javanense is a species of bird belonging to the Picidae family (woodpeckers). This species is known as Common Flameback or Common Goldenback and is found in plantations, coconut and scattered woodland in lowlands. Its natural habitats are subtropical or tropical dry forests, moist lowland forests, and mangrove forests.

The Common Flameback can easily be distinguishable by its golden back feathers and its red rump with the male exhibiting a flaming red crown, while the female has an all-black crown with white-streaked (Strange & Jeyarajasingam, 1993). Both sexes have black eyestripes joined to the black rear neck stripe and black-scaled white underparts and red rump contrasting with the black tail. It also has a small bill and only has three toes. The greater flameback (Chrysocolaptes lucidus) looks quite similar to this species. Its diets are including fruits like Rambutan (Nephelium lappaceum), Chempedak (Artocarpus integer) and insects like alate termites.
