|GREY-HEADED WOODPECKER (PICUS CANUS) - DANUBE DELTA|
The grey-headed woodpecker (Picus canus), also known as the grey-faced woodpecker, is a Eurasian member of the woodpecker family, Picidae.
Along with the more commonly found European green woodpecker and the Iberian green woodpecker, it is one of three closely related sister species found in Europe.
In the majority of areas for which population numbers are available, the grey-headed woodpecker is in decline.
As the grey-headed woodpecker prefers undisturbed and ancient forests with natural cohort structure as well as riparian forests for breeding, the destruction of such habitat is the greatest threat to the species.
