Video of the Heart-spotted Woodpecker (Hemicircus canente)

On a recent visit back to Karimanoor, A pair of Heart-spotted Woodpeckers were quite actively present around the house.

These normally shy birds were happy to move around in close proximity to the house and human presence and managed to give some good photo opportunities.

What was a rare sighting earlier has become more common. I guess this is a breeding pair that is nesting somewhere in the vicinity.

I even had time to switch to video and follow their movements for a while. The video is displayed on top.
