      Eurasian Wryneck (Jynx torquilla) Wrynecks are birds from the woodpecker family, with shorter beaks that are useful to feed on ants and other insects on plants, in decaying wood and on bare ground. They are winter visitors to the Indian subcontinent. On my recent trip to Tal Chapar, I encountered them very often on my drives into the sanctuary. This bird was photographed at Tal Chapar Wildlife Sanctuary, Rajasthan on Sep 29, 2012.
