Birds of Panama - large bird
The Lineated Woodpecker
(Dryocopus lineatus) is a very large
woodpecker which is a resident
breeding bird from Mexico south to
northern Argentina and on Trinidad.
Lineated Woodpeckers chip out holes,
often quite large, while searching
out insects in trees. They mainly
eat insects, especially ants,
beetles and their larvae, with some
seeds, such as from Heliconia, and
fruits, berries, and nuts. For
