Its pretty amazing to see the diversity of birds in the Himalaya. When we had camped in the small village of Pokhri in Chamoli dist. in 2019, we got ample proof of that. I saw this species of woodpecker for the first time and it was quite amazing. Thankfully, as I heard from the owner of the homestay a few weeks back, the place is still untouched.
