Blue-eared Barbet

Birding was very slow and hardly to see birds around. Only this barbet was most making much sound. I just couldn't bother and simply ignored it because I already has its picture and to locate this bird is not that easy too which is hidden mostly among the thick leaves. I walked up and down the road and suddenly spotted a bird flying to dead tree and saw going in the hole. Yeaa it was this barbet. I stopped nearby this dead tree and got ready my system for it and waited. I saw chick and once a while pop out its head and the mother came to feed its chick of about 1 or 2 hours duration.  I got only this barbet birding it for whole day. Feel excited as I never seen barbet in nest before. Happy birding.
