Birds in Neighbourhood - 9

I get to see variety of birds around my parents house in Udupi. 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.

I really like the white-checked Barbet; won't find those in Florida - well, unless someone brings them in and lets them loose. South Florida is full of little green parrots that are multiplying as we speak (or write)! They came from somewhere else.

Beautiful little bird. He's so well-camouflaged, he must be hard to spot in the leafy branches.

Congratulations on these exotic captures. The barbet is normally a very shy bird - we hear it more often but very difficult to sight.

That's a beautiful bird... The touch of white is so pretty with his bright green coloring.
