A medium-sized, golden-backed woodpecker with long and solid black moustachial stripes. Both sexes have black eye-stripes joined to black rear neck stripe. Male has red, female black crown. Black-scaled white underparts and red rump contrasting with black tail. Rather small bill and only three toes. The Greater Flameback (Chrysocolaptes lucidus) looks quite similar.

 

Its natural habitats are subtropical or tropical dry forests, subtropical or tropical moist lowland forests, and subtropical or tropical mangrove forests.

 

The Common Flameback or Common Goldenback (Dinopium javanense) is a species of bird in the Picidae family. It is found in Bangladesh, Brunei, Cambodia, China, India, Indonesia, Laos, Malaysia, Myanmar, the Philippines, Singapore, Thailand, and Vietnam.
