Woodpecker

Standard

I saw a woodpecker in our backyard!  I usually would ignore the birds and let them do their usual thing.

But this particular bird attracted my attention.  It was pecking on the trunk of the mango tree.  I was thinking, “this is not the birds we usually see everyday.  it must be a woodpecker.”  Sure enough it was.  It kept on pecking on the tree.  Then, I think it realized that there was a watcher nearby.  It hopped up to the top.

The woodpecker head was red and so was its wings.  It had a distinct crest.  I googled and found a nice clear picture of the bird … the “banded woodpecker” (Picus miniaceus) …
