The cry of 'Lokuputha ko'- Where is the elder son? in Sinhalese - this bird announces its arrival Because of its yellow color it is easily spotted in the green foliage. It loves to eat ripe mango fruits, hence its name 'Maampala kuruvi' - Mango bird in Tamil. It is called 'Kaha kurulla - Yellow bird in Sinhalese. I took these pictures of the bird sitting on a 'Veralu' tree close to our house.
