Fine pictures of a fine bird, Saly. Reminds me of the acorn woodpecker you posted some time back - except for the dots on the body and feathers, this almost looks the same as that. Correct me if I am wrong.

Thank you everyone!

Raghu, yes these birds are related. There are several species of woodpeckers in our country with slightly different feather patterns. This was taken in a different part of the woods from the Acorn. The Acorns in my previous post are slightly unique in that they like to make holes in the tree trunk and insert the acorns in them!

Ah, but you have those beautiful old buildings (and the cute robin) on your side! Thanks Fitcip.

Nice ones Saly. I guess he uses his tongue to catch bugs?
