The White-bellied Woodpecker, (Dryocopus javensis), or Great Black
Woodpecker is found in evergreen forests in southwestern and central
India and in forests in the Western Ghats. They are the largest of the Indian Woodpeckers and nest in large dead trees, often beside rivers.
The call of this species is a loud ‘Kyaaw’ and like other woodpeckers
it drums on wood but sounds much louder than those of smaller species.
