    These three came together at about 5:00 pm on October 9, 2020. The barbet is a regular at the tree, the oriole on occasion and the bulbul a first-timer.

    These two were enjoying basking in the sunshine together, with no worries of Covid.

    I liked this photo because it shows how the colours of the coppersmith match those of the trees' leaves.

    Not ready yet...

    This coppersmith was at the banyan tree testing all the fruits. However, it was not taking a bite. Clearly they know when the fruits are ready to eat. A couple of days later, they were gorging on the fuits. As you can see, it was warm day and the barbet was keeping its bill open the whole time.

    Out of my bedroom window this morning I could see a movement on the stump of a dead tree, a Coppersmith Barbet extracting breakfast.

    Quite a close shot but difficult lighting with strong sun shining through the leaves!

    Can we eat now.

    This image was taken around the Chitwan area of Nepal. Todays cameras capture almost everything.

    Coppersmith Barbet - Different Moods

    This picture was taken at the Rabindra Sarobar Lake in Kolkata, India. Was fortunate to find the Barbet at the same spot for quite some time and caught the beautifully colored bird in different moods.

    Heard some wood pecking sound and thought it was a wood pecker. Instead, I found this Coppersmith Babet toiling away at the bark.
