'Brown-headed Barbet' - Megalaima zeylanica, Home garden, Avissawella, Sri Lanka.





The noisiest bird in the jungles of Sri Lanka. The older generation of bird-watchers could never get a bird-song recorded without the cry of this bird creeping into the audio-recording.

Brown-headed Barbet - Megalaima zeylanica, Avissawella, Sri Lanka.

The loudest bird in the garden. Makes its loud cry from a tree close by. When it descends to eat the fruits offered it is very silent. It is off in a jiffy if it catches sight of a human closeby.
