SRI LANKA ~ Brown-Headed Barbet ~

... A beautiful bird shot... although it is a small island its diversity of bird species is significantly high... this Barbet has a distinctive call, a repetitive kutroo-kutroo-kutroo... Thank you very much Ravindra for showing me once more the amazing wildlife of your island!! (✿ ♥‿♥)
