HOOPOE: Few years back I read a Middle in The Times of India, where the author was narrating his observation about a Woodpecker. From his description I could make out that he was talking about a Hoopoe. This mis conception about Hoopoe is not restricted to the city folks. I have asked about the identity of this bird from the villagers, they also think that the bird is Woodpecker. Attaching an image of this bird. I am also attaching an image of Bauhinia Purpurea (Deva Kanchan). Once in bloom. none can miss this tree.
- This appears  to be Bauhinia x blakeana to me. If I am not mistaken, I can see the characteristic black margins and centre spot black, on one of the petals in the top left flower.
 
Family: FABACEAE
One of the hybrids of Bauhinia. It is often called as Hong Kong orchid tree. It originated in Hong Kong in 1880 and apparently all of the cultivated trees derive from one cultivated at the Hong Kong Botanic Gardens.

Fabaceae-Caesalpinioideae (Caesalpiniaceae) Week: Bauhinia purpurea from Pune:  Photographed this beautiful tree in full bloom, in wild, at Pune. dated- Oct 2010 .
look like Bauhinia purpurea
all pics says Bauhinia purpurea , but the close up flower pic resembles Bauhinia x blakeana .
As the close up pic z frm a similar tree I assumed it too as
Bauhinia purpurea. But may b dat z
Bauhinia x blakeana.
really no idea... cv are most difficult ones to id.
It is Bauhinina blakeana
Kindly see the differences I had listed with my upload of B. blakeana
This one is Bauhinia blakeana as it has 5 stamens.
Bauhinia purpurea has 3 stamens. Check my pictures posted today.
Agreed the overall look of B.blakeana is darker esp the the darkest petal
.

Fabaceae - Caesalpinioideae (Caesalpinaceae) - Bauhinia × blakeana S. T. Dunn from Hong Kong: Bauhinia × blakeana S. T. Dunn
Family: FABACEAE
One of the hybrids of Bauhinia. It is often called as Hong Kong orchid tree. It originated in Hong Kong in 1880 and apparently all of the cultivated trees derive from one Cultivated at the Hong Kong Botanic Gardens.  
All Hong Kong cents have image of flower of this plant. I assume there are only two countries in the world who have hybrid flowers as their national flower, Singapore with Vanda Miss Joaquim and Hong Kong with Bauhinia blakeana.
History (WIKI): This tree was discovered in around 1880 near the ruins of a house on above the shore-line of western Hong Kong island near Pok Fu Lam and propagated to the formal botanical gardens in Victoria/ Central. It was later named for Sir Henry Blake, British Governor of Hong Kong, from 1898 to 1903 who was a keen amateur botanist, by the man who made the first thorough scientific description of the 'Hong Kong orchid tree' S. T. Dunn, Superintendent of the Botanical and Forestry Department, who assigned it to the genus Bauhinia and named it after Blake in his paper of 1908.

Bauhinia for ID : Pali,Maharashtra : 251212 : AK-2: A small, cultivated tree seen at a farm in Pali, Maharashtra on 23/11/2012. Purple flowers seen, no pods when the picture was taken. Id please.
It is Bauhinia purpurea.
i guess B. blakeana and not B. purpurea
Considering the latest and earlier discussions on similar post by you I think this is B.blakeana as I can see 2 small stamens and some longer stamens ..total should be 5.

Pls ID. Bauhinia purpurea?
Place-Alapuzha
Habitat-cultivated garden.
Height-15 feet.erect tree.

Flowers-rose scented.   

Bhauhinia racemosa 
The images are of Bauhinia variegata L.
I think, you could also check for Bauhinia x blakeana....
Looks more like B. x blakeana
5 stamens are clearly seen, petals broader, so B. purpurea is out of race
Flowering season of 3, B. purpurea summers in Delhi, mostly July to October, B. blakeana November to February along with leaves, B. variegata January-March mostly start appearing before leaves. 
Thanks ... that is a very nice succinct differentiation.

Could the members of this esteemed group help ID this Kachnar species from the Sukhna lake promenade, Chandigarh. These trees were planted in the 1960s under the guidance of MS Randhawa, then Chief Commissioner, Chandigarh, and were the result of grafts not directly from seeds.
The Kachnar at Sukhna bloom in winters only. The flowers have five stamens. The leaf is about 15 cm across. Pics were taken today.
Is this Bauhinia blakeana or Bauhinia purpurea?

Not Bauhinia purpurea 

It is Bauhinea blakei.
