It is apparently a type of Woodpecker. You can see what it has done to our trees.

Another new bird for me, Sandy, resembling so much our own woodpeckers but this species so brightly coloured red on head and breast.
Seems to be keeping an eye on you.

Never even heard of this one Sandy, well spotted and captured. He certainly seems to be removing bark, I assume to get to the sap to suck.

What a weird looking bird to me it looks part Woodpecker and part Parrot.
Lovely shot.
