Picumnus dorbignyanus

The ocellated piculet is a species of bird in the family Picidae. It is found in Argentina, Bolivia, and Peru. Its natural habitats are subtropical or tropical moist montane forests and heavily degraded former forest. It was first described in 1845 as Picumnus d’Orbignyanus by the French ornithologist Frédéric de Lafresnaye, being named in honour of the French naturalist Alcide d'Orbigny, but since then has been largely mis-spelt as P. dorbygnianus. It hybridizes with the white-barred piculet where their ranges overlap.
