Banded Woodpecker – at bird bath

posted in: birds, Comfort behaviour | 0

An older video and DSLR images of a male Banded Woodpecker (Chrysophlegma miniaceum malaccense) at our home bird bath and drinking pond. Many birds come, including the odd raptor.

Sadly as more mature trees in the neighbourhood are cut (due to house owners unhappy with sweeping leaf fall), it harder to see woodpeckers in the neighbourhood. We have now installed a permanent water feature that all the birds are aware of and visit often.
