Was at Ubin this morning and with a few more private property fences removed, i decided to explore one of the many "durian dusun" (durian orchard) over there...not in search of Ubin durians, but rather woodpeckers !!...
Not really an expert in bird id and lacking eye for the minute details, i was slightly confused...although still very much happy to see 4-5 woodpeckers on the orchard i was in.
Initially i thought it was a Banded woodpecker(picus miniaceus), but from the description from the book -A Field Guide to Birds of Southeast Asia by Craig Robson describing the differences between Banded vs Crimson Winged (picus puniceus), i felt that what i say and with the pics above and below,this is a Crimson-winged woodpecker.
Unless of course i took pics of different woodpeckers !! (i.e both banded and crimson)
