The 'yellow belly'd wood-pecker' and the 'smallest spotted wood-pecker'

'Picus varius minor, ventre luteo', the yellow belly'd wood-pecker, and 'Picus varius minimus', the smallest spotted wood-pecker, perched on a white oak. The leaves of 'Quercus alba virginiana', the white oak, and 'Quercus caroliniensis virentibus venis muricata', the white oak with pointed notches, are also shown for comparison (Catesby's identifications; modern scientific names: Sphyrapicus varius, the yellow-bellied sapsucker; Picoides pubescens, the downy woodpecker; Quercus alba, the white oak; Quercus falcata, the southern red oak). Plate 21 from volume I of The natural history of Carolina, Florida and the Bahama Islands, by Mark Catesby (London, 1731). Mark Catesby was elected a Fellow of the Royal Society in 1733.

Original: etching. 1731
