Special Birds: White-backed Woodpecker male

This photo of an adult male White-backed Woodpecker Dendrocopos leucotos was taken in Hungary by Laszlo Becsy. There are two races of this species, the nominate leucotos in northern and central Europe eastwards into Asia (as the bird here) and lilfordi in southern Europe, in the Mediterranean and Balkan countries.
