Woodpeckers and Oil Palm Fruits

This Woodpeckers was found with Palm Oil fruits by the road side.
I don’t think this bird eats the mesocarp of palm oil, maybe searching for insect inside the bunches.

Common Flameback (Dinopium javanense) – female (above) male (below), and Oil Palm (Elaeis guineensis)

Location: Near Padang Golf Raub, Pahang.
