Spotted Creeper (by S.S. Poonia)

This photograph of a very uncommon bird Spotted Creeper was taken by Ch. Surat Singh Poonia, a wildlife officer posted at Tal Chhapar, Rajasthan. He spotted the Spotted Creeper inside the Tal Chhapar sanctuary on 5th Nov 09. Pooniaji is a passionate birdwatcher and highly motivated officer. I am all admires for him. Within a short span of 3 months, he has spotted, photographed and informed the world about some rarities like Yellow-eyed Pigeons, Great Indian Bustard, Caspitan Plover, White-browed Bushchats etc from Tal Chhapar.
