[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This is the first exotic bird (not available at my native place) I saw in this country. Even though I sampled it before, I could not get close that time. This is even available in the occidental world, though, I could not find any then & there.

Spring offered a good opportunity. Most of the birds were busy rearing their young & hence stayed mostly near the ground - The chics were able to fly but rather won't unless someone closes in. I took the opportunity to harness this fact by getting near but not threateningly close!
