Happy Couple: Rufous Woodpecker

7th August 2010, Kemensah, Selangor

A pair of Rufous Woodpecker were foraging on the lower branches of a Jack-fruit tree. Both male and female look almost similar except for the red cheek patch on the male.

  1. Nice photos of this woodpecker!
    They seem to be pretty quick and I've yet to get any decent shot of the species.

  2. Nice shots of both male and female!

  3. Unusual colours but not unusal shape for a woodpecker Madi but you captured them really well.
