Buff-Rumped Woodpecker

9th October 2011, Semenyih, Selangor

 

It has been quite sometime since I last saw this woodpecker. On this occasion a pair decided to feed  on a low tree not far from my position.  It is usually the male that is more colourful in the animal kingdom and in this case the male  has a red patch on the cheek and denser vermiculation on the face compared to the female.
