|The Coppersmith Barbet came visiting again late in the afternoon to the acacia tree near my house yesterday. The light had turned a bit dull on a semi-cloudy day.|
The coppersmith barbet, crimson-breasted barbet or coppersmith (Psilopogon haemacephalus), is a bird with crimson forehead and throat which is best known for its metronomic call that has been likened to a coppersmith striking metal with a hammer. It is a resident found in the Indian subcontinent and parts of Southeast Asia. Like other barbets, they chisel out a hole inside a tree to build their nest. They are mainly fruit eating but will take sometimes insects, especially winged termites.

Nice photo of this barbet in front. Good focus on the head. I think I had prefered a vertical composition.
