|Sunda Pygmy Woodpecker|
(Dendrocopus moluccensis) 褐头啄木鸟
Size: 13 cm
A very small black and white woodpecker; distinguished from similar Frey-Capped Woodpecker, Dendrocopus canicapillua, by its brown cap. The female has no thin red line behind the eye while male’s has it.
A short, penetrating trill, somewhat like a telephone ring.
Mainly a mangrove bird, but also occurs in open woodlands and nearby gardens. Adapts well to disturbed habitats and its expansion is possibly due to regional forest clearance. An active bird that always searching through the thin branches for minute invertebrate prey.
A very common resident and breeder throughout Singapore.

Good picture. I liked the composition showing the pattern on the bird's wings. If i have to pick a nit.. then.. I feel the picture looks a bit soft ... Not a major issue... hope you don't mind :-)
Very beautiful activity. Congratulations on a great capture. And very well presented. Best wishes.
