Coppersmith Barbet At Hampstead Wetlands Park

Coppersmith Barbet

It’s a good sunny Sunday when I visited the Hampstead Wetlands Park, saw this beautiful woodpecker busy making a new nest!

Recognised by it’s unique red hair and green body, I found this little woodpecker stay very alert while he is making the tree hollow by digging it constantly.

These photos are taken by the following gears:

  • Camera : E-M1 Mark III
  • Lens : Olympus M.Zuiko 100-400mm f/5.0-6.3 IS + MC-14

It’s definitely an enjoyable moment to observe the coppersmith barbet digging on the tree and preparing it’s new home!

  1. What an amazing sight that must have been, how exciting! I never knew there were woodpeckers like this. We have woodpeckers eat from our sunflower seed feeder. I love when they visit.

    • Thank you! If I am not wrong, this woodpecker species only exist in the Indian subcontinent and part of the Southeast Asia area. I believe the woodpecker in your area is colourful and beautiful as well 🙂
