One bird I have always wanted to see and shoot a little more of, we finally saw and shot this afternoon :D Take a look at how well this Brown Headed Barbet is camouflaged.
We heard them first and then saw them at some distance – two brown headed barbets and two common mynas. Since I had no idea we would see more of them, I took ten shots :P
Can you spot the second Barbet?
They were busy excavating.
One beakfull at a time.
Digging some more,
Spitting out another beakfull.
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…
Notice how well they are camouflaged?
Looks like this one is admiring the view from her new home :D
And then there was a flash of a gorgeous green…
And it disappeared into the foliage :(
And immediately landed Inspector Common Myna for spot inspection :D
I visited a blogging friend and met her very good looking neighbor…
Indian Roller, spotted and shot :)
Can you identify this bird?
Brown headed green bee eater.
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 :)
Some of us don’t care.

Where would ghosts go, if we cut all trees?
It’s not yet summer in Delhi…
