This time I'm sure about the ID, a Great Barbet, Megalaima virens.
Very nice photo in beautiful colours.

Peter is right Ram: this is a the Great Barbet, an impressive and colourful species that I have never seen.
This makes even a less-than-perfect shot of it the more appreciated and a valuable contribution to TN.
The bird is well seen with good clarity and natural colours.
Thanks for sharing this!

How lucky you were way back to capture a Gret Barbet! I didn't think Barbets were found so far up north. This one has a very large beak and it looks very colourful. Keep on the look-out and you may find it again!!
TFS and all the best wishes, Ulla
Hope you are well. Man, I am impressed by your notes, you remind me of Jim Corbett and Kenneth Anderson, W.H. Hudson and a few others.It is such a good note what if the photo is of poor quality and it takes us right back there, way back in 2009 when you were running stealthily after this beautiful bird of your childhood with your heart perhaps throbbing in your head, perpetually stalking it.
I think you have done a great service to your region by posting this photo.It was yet another novel experience of reading the note and watching this amazing photo.Take care and keep them coming at us.....smile....warmest regards/Abid

this is a new Barbet to me... not seen it yet. it would be a nice experience to see and photograph it someday. yes, the photograph is not doing justice to the beauty of the bird. got blurred. why don't you go to that region and try this bird once more? i am loving the idea of it :)

Very touching your note! You are aware that the picture isn't the best, but you show us an extraordinary bird with its marvellous plumage which I don't remember having seen here on TN. Next time you will may be lucky enough for a very sharp shot. I wish it too you.
Have a nice week
