Birds In Neighbourhood - 4

I am the few of the fortunate who occasionally get to see few birds of different variety around my house in Bangalore. I have captured few of them in my camera and here they are. One such beautiful bird is White-cheeked Barbet.


It is found mostly in southern India. It has a distinctive super-cilium and a broad white cheek stripe below the eye. The head is brownish streaked with white, sometimes giving it a capped appearance. The bill is pale pinkish.
