Good capture of a rare bird.
Dear Arun, You got a good picture of this picturesque bird with bewitching eyes. It was a good catch.

Nice bird! A note on the name. This is Blue-faced MALKOHA (with an h, not a v)- Phaenicophaeus viridirostris. Etymologically, the common name is taken from the bluish coloration of the periocular skin; the latin viridirostris makes reference to the bluish-green cast of the bill, cf. viridian.
