Very interesting subject! You are lucky to have something so beautiful available at predictable times. You should use this to learn how to take shots of it in motion etc. However, you might need a long lens for this. I have not used a powershot so dont know what it is capable of ... good capture nevertheless.

This Woodpecker has an interesting crown, Manoj. I also like those white, bold streaks across its face. Combined with its generally brown plumage, these features make him a good looking specimen.
Well done and TFS.

Wonderful shot with fine details and colours. Though it is a bit pixelled it still retains its beauty. Great use of natural lighting and you have captured a fine pose on the coconut tree. The blue sky as BG works well here. Excellent POV and composition. Kudos.

I've seen the Black-rumped Flameback in Goa but wasn't able to take a good shot so it is nice to see this fine capture well composed on the palm tree trunk with pretty good sharpness against a blue sky BG.
Well done and thanks for sharing this,

A lovely capture of this wood pecker. The only nit here is the noise else it is a fine capture with good notes. Thanks a lot for sharing.
Wishing you a very Happy New Year 2008.

Nice capture. Thogh i see them almost everyday in our compound so far i have not been able to take its picture successfully. i think this one is a male as the red crown is more prominent in this one. Good POV, focus and details.Nice blue background.
Thanks and Regards,

This is a beautiful bird true to its name. I like the details of your shot right down to the feather and eyes. Well done!
