Beautiful clear picture of a spectacular looking bird - nice one!

Lovely pic

Great photo - these birds have amazingly dextrous tongues ( around 10cm long) and spend much of their time foraging for ants on the ground.

If you try and listen out for its call, it's not a drumming sound but more of a yaffling noise.
