Grey-and-Buff Woodpecker (Hemicircus concretus sordidus). You can tell by the red crown that it’s a male. He’s been putting on extra styling gel , a very trendy bird!
This photo of the female was taken in January 09. Notice the difference in the colour of the crown.
Strange that both male and female lack the black stripe at the eye ( as per Robson’s Field Guide). Is this a new sub-species?
