It looks a little like a miniature pileated woodpecker, but with some nice golden tones. Its amazing how many species of birds your country seems to have.

Animtreebird, that's a beautiful bird. My goodness, our woodpeckers surely don't have that many colors. I especially like the "golden" color on this bird.

Thanks Larry Jordan. But I boycot Kerala tourism. Because they are responsible for the deaths of lot of street dogs, elephants, turtles, rabbits, owls, etc, in the most inhumane manner possible. So I do not wish to even look at photos taken from that place.
