September Bird of the Month
We have Philippine Pygmy Woodpeckers in our place (Tag., Karpintero-maliit, Banuktok) and they're easy to spot because of their, well, pecking noise, tapping their hardy beaks on tree hollows with a cadence that's unmistakeable. Most people have not seen woodpeckers and are even amused to know they actually exist, thinking they are just figments of some cartoonists' imagination.
They're fairly common and frequent old fruit trees, like this avocado in the photo above.
