| View Cart ⇗ | Info

“Picus martius, the Black Woodpecker, an inhabitant of the pine-forests of Europe and Asia to Japan, quite erroneously asserted to have occurred in England. The colour is black with exception of a red head, while the feathering extends down two-thirds of the metatarsus in front.” A. H. Evans, 1900 Distinction between the male and the female can be seen on the crown. The male’s is entirely red, while the female’s shows just a touch of red on the tip.
