Thanks Ken, Click, and rpt
Rpt, to shoot the Coppersmith you need to have a fruiting tree that it likes like the Balete tree
from the genus Ficus. In this currently fruiting tree we were able to spot a family of four (two adults & two juvi) hoping around the tree looking for food. It took a lot of waiting and focus to get the subject in a frame that somewhat illuminated, does not have front obstruction and whose background isn't that busy or sky.
We were experimenting with using LED torches to defeat the back light with some success. I say some success as the LED torch was able to balance the back light but the subject was looking away from us at the time of exposure.
I normally look for slight movement in the trees and the Coppersmith's signature red head in a sea of green leaves to find it.
It also helps to have a friend with you helping spotting the bird and holding the LED torch for you.
For the above mentioned photo no LED torch was used.
