Taxonomy

Description

Dryocopus javensis is a large-sized woodpecker measuring about 43 cm in length (Strange & Jeyarajasingam, 1993). It is commonly known as White bellied woodpecker or Belatuk hitam putih in Malay. This species can be found in lowland rainforest of Peninsular Malaysia as well as the secondary growth and mangroves (Strange & Jeyarajasingam, 1993). It often moves in pair (Jeyarajasingam & Pearson, 2012).

In general, the White bellied woodpecker has a black plumage with white belly and red crest in both sexes. The males can easily be identified by the red malar stripe and crown. In contrast with the male appearance, the females have a black crown but lack red malar stripe.
