Always i love to frame Woodpeckers and made a wishlist to click Endemic birds in Shri Lanka.even thought for places where we can click these endemic birds.
Our flight landed around at 5.30am at Bandaranaike International Airport Kandy.we missed the early morning sunrise due to bad timing of arrival of Sri Lankan airlines.after clearing all procedure we came out of airport but our tour guide cum leader was delayed by 30-40min.We have option to check in at hotel for refreshment or go on as our schedule,we were already late so choose 2nd option even though we didn't sleep in flight.
We reached around at 10am at Elephant Orphanage,Pinnawela.saw few baby to sub adult elephant there as they were lost in jungle and feed here till they become adult and drop them in jungle.i was looking for birds and hear call but didn't sighted except Sri Lanka Jungle Babbler.while we were returning towards our Mini bus,entered in small garden and Dr.Pragnesh sighted this beauty,i was searching birds slightly away from him.he shout and asked to rush there to click as woodpeckers normally jump one branch to another.i ran towards him and click 3-4 shots but as i wrote it jumped inside the next tree. as i have no good shot,walked towards this beauty and got at least one shot.
