Laced Woodpecker and Streaked-breasted Woodpecker

Laced Woodpecker and Streak-breasted Woodpecker are two similar-looking woodpeckers but of different species. Can you spot the difference?

Laced Woodpecker has a blackish mustache which is slightly speckled whitish. The Streaked-breasted Woodpecker also has a blackish mustache that is usually less bold than the Laced Woodpecker. The Streaked Woodpecker has a greener streaked throat.

I photographed both Laced Woodpecker and Streak-breasted Woodpecker in Kaeng Krachan National Park in April in Thailand.
