Sunda Pygmy Woodpecker preening and territorial call

On the morning of 7th July 2013, Jeremiah Loei documented a male Sunda Pygmy Woodpecker (Dendrocopos moluccensis) perching on a bare branch vigorously preening himself. At the same time he was belting out his territorial call of a sharp series of kikikikikikikikikikikiki. The location was the Singapore Garden by the Bay.
