Coppersmith Barbet by garion Coppersmith Barbet by garion
A Coppersmith Barbet or Crimson-breasted Barbet (Megalaima haemacephala), feeding on figs. This species of barbet is found in plains, foothills and terai up to 200m in dry- and moist-deciduous biotope. It is entirely arboreal (like most barbets), preferring open wooded country and urban gardens and avoiding dense forest. Somewhat larger than a sparrow, it is a relatively small barbet at 17 cm.

The call is a loud rather metallic tuk…tuk…tuk (or tunk), reminiscent of a copper sheet being beaten, giving the bird its name. Repeated monotonously for long periods, starting with a subdued tuk and building up to an even volume and tempo, the latter varying from 1.5 to 2 per second.

Above info extracted from Wiki.

Wow, what a beautifully colourful bird! What I love about this photo is the composition - the way the bird is off centre and leaning down, plus the little twig. Might I add, wonderful depth of field as well as details and overall quality.

A lovely photo indeed!
