[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Taken at Sanjeeviah Park, Hyderabad.

This might be my last picture from Hyderabad. My company is shifting to Bangalore and I am relocating to Bangalore today. Have seen lots of beautiful photographs in TrekNature by Bangalore based TrekNaturians and looking forward to exploring that city :).

More information about the Barbet:

Geographic range: Coppersmith barbets are found from peninsular and northern India, northeastern Pakistan, Bangladesh, Nepal, and Sri Lanka, to southwestern China, Malaysia, Sumatra, and the Philippines.

Habitat: Coppersmith barbets prefer dry deciduous woodlands, forest edges, teak forests, irrigated orchards and plantations with fruiting trees, urban areas that contain trees, and mangroves.

Diet: Their diet consists of figs, custard-apples, guavas, mangos, and papal fruits, along with smaller berries and many types of insects such as beetles, crickets, mantids (plural of mantis; large, predatory insects), and various insect larvae. They tap and chip away tree bark in order to find invertebrates (animals without a backbone).

Hi Sowmya

A very apt caption would be 'Peeping tom' or 'Curious tim'...I liked this picture very much for the interesting pose..

All the best!

Thats a nice curious look on that barbet :)
Banglore is an amazing place, I mean the country side too! tfs.

Hi Sowmya,

Very nice framing of this barbet perched well on that branch. The clear bg isolates the bird well in the frame.

TFS and best regards,

Hello Sowmya,

Very good capture of Barbet and nice colours. Seems the Barbet is looking for someone!


Namastay Sowmya, an excellent shot of this beautifully coloured bird in a fine composition with nice details and lovely posture.
TFS and cheers,

Hello Sowmya, nice picture of a Barbet again. Good colors and sharp focus.
