The Japanese pygmy woodpecker (Dendrocopos kizuki), called "kogera" in Japanese, normally drums on trees. However, during observations conducted over seven years in the Satoyama landscape of Japan, the author discovered the unique behaviour of a Japanese pygmy woodpecker individual. The woodpecker often preferred to drum on metal plates of telephone poles to seek the metal's specific high-pitched sound. This case study suggests that landscape diversity can translate into behavioural diversity within species.doi:10.21203/rs.3.rs-1200767/v1 fatcat:7b63kl36njeuhollkzwzmepa6i
