“I watched this Banded Woodpecker (Chrysophlegma miniaceus) for a few minutes this evening.
“First I saw it foraging on a dry palm frond :
“Next it took some gulps of water, I think, from a tree hole:
“Then it slurped up some insects (ants?) from a small hole in a tree trunk, its flicking tongue reminded me of an anteater.”
