Hi Biswarup,

It's really amazing that a bird like woodpecker would come & sit on a window sill. You are a lucky man!!!

Thanks for sharing.

Hello Biswarup,
What a pretty woodpecker from your country, I don't believe we have any quite like it here in the US. Most woodpeckers I've seen are a variation of black and white polka dotted plumage with some red on them. I really enjoy seeing the yellow on this woodpeckers wings and back.
It appears it is using it's tail to keep it from falling backwards while perched on the window ledge. I am guessing it sees it's reflection in the window pane and thinks it is another bird. This happens fairly often with birds around here, as they end up pecking at their reflection for long periods at a time. Nicely focused and showing beautiful colors and markings.

Bonjour Biswarup,
Agréable valorisation du sujet.
A bientôt sur TN pour de nouvelles aventures.
