Banded Woopecker or 'Belatok Merah'

Banded Woodpecker - Picus miniaceus

It is not a very clear picture because it was shot in the shade without the aid of any flash.  However, the image is good enough to show a bird I have not seen in Sarawak (as yet)  but able to have a glimpse at the Kuala Lumpur Botanic garden called 'Taman Botani Perdana'.  Its red forehead and cheek plus its wings convinced me it is the Banded Woodpecker which Malays call 'Belatok Merah'.
