A March afternoon with Brown Headed Barbet :D

One bird I have always wanted to see and shoot a little more of, we finally saw and shot this afternoon😀 Take a look at how well this Brown Headed Barbet is camouflaged.

Can you spot the second Barbet?

This one then disappeared inside for a while. The other one made a racket from a tree branch. The mynas continued to lurk.

We waited. And waited. And waited…

And finally emerged a beak. And then a face…

The belief that baby birds that are touched by human hands will be rejected by their parents is a myth.

Met one more colourful neighbour this morning :)
