White Cheeked Barbet - 2

Earlier I had posted pictures of the same bird, now this is one more which was taken yesterday. And I hope you all will this too..

In fact this shot is far better than the three I got earlier. And it was only around 15 feet from me, sitting on a mylanchi (henna) branch.

Don't forget to visit the other post also, behaviour and characteristics of the bird I had noted were given there. White Cheeked Barbet (Megalaima viridis) is a common bird in South India.

Hope you loved this nice bird.
