Woodpeckers And Waterhens

Three Black-rumped Flameback Woodpeckers,Dinopium benghalense, gave me quite a run around the neighborhood a  couple of days ago. I barely managed to make this crappy video showing two of them.




 Remember the Waterhen family I showed you last week? The chicks are apparently doing well. I saw them at the same spot today and took a couple of photos and made a short video. The parents are a  little less protective of the chicks now, allowing them to wonder on their own a little. 






That's about all the birds I've got about this week, as I had to compromise birding to have my family life intact!

A post for World Bird Wednesday.
