Coppersmith Barbet
... for its
tiny size ( 7 inches ) ... the
bird is a real
powerhouse ...
... a living dynamo
It drilled the branch
through the whole
thickness ... while
preparing a hole
...
Watch the action in this
video-clip ...
... recorded close to
a busy road ... so
a variety of accompanying
sounds are audible ... I
have not blocked them ...
... to highlight the busy
urban milieu ...

A very graceful bird. With its beak wide open, it looks like it's smiling. I also like the background music; I assume the radio was on?

You are right about radio. It was on in my bedroom ... and was playing a superhit Bollywood song , from 1950s ...
