Blue-throated Barbet

Megalaima asiatica

Description:

Green body, blue throat (but naturally!) red on crown...thick beak,

Habitat:

On a tree in a residential locality in the heart of the city.

Notes:

I see this species sometimes...maybe 2-3 times a year...but always in the evening when it comes out to sing. I wish I could catch it in full light of the day, the colours are so beautiful.
