Sunda Pygmy Woodpecker

Sunda Woodpecker

It just occured to me that I don’t have a picture of a woodpecker on this site.  Being a great fan of this family of birds, I guess that just won’t do.  So here is a Sunda Pygmy Woodpecker Dendrocopus moluccensis which I took a while back.   The smaller woodpeckers have such wonderful vocalisation and this one is no exception.  And it also matches its rapid notes with an incredible workrate when foraging.
