These are probably among the most detailed clips of this species ever filmed in natural habitat. This bird is found only in the Philippines, where it ranges in most major islands except the Palawan group and Masbate.
At 5.5 inches total length, it is the smallest woodpecker in this country. It is often seen creeping up tree trunks and branches in forest, edge, and even in city parks. It has a loud trilling call.
