White-naped woodpecker at Puttenahalli lake

Update from Srini, a keen bird watcher from Puttenahalli.

Puttenahalli lake is filled with surprises! Check out this shot I took this morning, taken at the bare tree next to the lake. This is the rarely seen White-naped woodpecker. I've never seen it in an urban setting, but here it is.
And last evening, I saw a large flock of spot-billed pelicans circling over the lake and moving on. Perhaps they were checking out the lake for future use.
Cheers ... Srini.

We hope the spot-billed pelicans decide to move in soon. Will keep you posted. No doubt, Srini will be waiting to welcome them with his camera!
