Description

(Melanerpes aurifrons)
◉ Morelia, Michoacán, México

"Es frecuente verlo picoteando los troncos de los árboles, y ocasionalmente se le ve posado en el suelo. Se alimenta de frutos e insectos que extrae de la corteza de los árboles usando su lengua larga y retráctil. Es común encontrarlo en áreas arbolada, mezquitales, huertos de nogal y en zonas urbanas en parques y jardines."
