Green-billed Malkoha (Rhopodytes tristis)
Green billed Malkoha is certainly the bird that was most difficult for me to photograph. Very very shy and always deep inside canopies, they are difficult to spot, let alone taking pictures. I was lucky enough to get a glimpse of one in front of the Akshara School in our campus. But the joy was short lived as the bird knew I was watching and hurriedly crept (yeah, it crept and did not fly!! ) to higher branches and kept out of sight. After another half an hour of wait, I could finally capture it in my cam!
1. Greyish and shiny green body
2. Red eye patch
3. Long tail
4. White tips to tail feathers
5. Slightly yellowish green bill giving this Malkoha its name!
So when you are lucky enough to come across this one.. use these pictures to help you out!
