Went for a stroll at Punggol Park last evening, and spotted this bird :

As I had my camera with me, I tried to take a photo of it. There were actually two or three of them, flying amongst the trees, so I had to follow them around. Took me quite a number of tries before I got a clear shot, which is the photo seen above.

Once home, I searched around online for info about the bird, and found it in Wikipedia.

The bird was a type of Woodpecker, known as the Common Flameback (Dinopium javanense)

Learned something new!
