Gray-capped pygmy woodpecker on food mission in Beijing garden

A gray-capped pygmy woodpecker was seen enjoying food in Beijing Botanical Garden. The small woodpecker has a dark grey crown. Woodpeckers like to fly around alone or in pairs. The gray-capped pygmy woodpecker mainly consumes insects, though they sometimes eat fruits and seeds. 

Beijing Botanical Garden, located on the northwest outskirts of Beijing, is one of the most popular parks in the city.
