And for a change...

I hope this is the Black rumped flameback woodpecker.
Not very common in city areas, this bird is on a very strange mission!

Lucky to find him perched on a plantain bud (not a quality shot, but I liked it)

Is it an amazing experience to take bird shots? There is so much to study them.

@Pavan Kaul: Pavan I think we should watch these birds and understand their life as well! Thanks for the comment.

Good morning Mohkum,
the quality of reception is not very good, but I am glad that I could still watch the woodpecker. I was once very much in the way of nature and have often observed woodpeckers. Everywhere in the woods you can hear them banging. Best regards Christel

@Christel: Christel thanks for the comment. Me and my wife always love to watch these birds, particularly any new place we visit. We want to improve our birding as well!
