ABC Wednesday: Y is for Yaffingale

yaffingale

A Yaffingale is another name for the European Green Woodpecker (Picus viridis). They have a loud voice that often gives them away, it's called yaffling. But despite that call and their large size (over 30cm overall length), they are hard to spot and well camouflaged. Unlike other woodpeckers, they often feed on the ground since ants make up the largest part of their diet.
