Shot from my Balcony -White-throated kingfisher (Halcyon smyrnensis)

Tamil Name-மீன்கொத்தி

The white-throated kingfisher (Halcyon smyrnensis) also known as the white-breasted kingfisher is a tree kingfisher, widely distributed in Asia from the Sinai east through the Indian subcontinent to the Philippines.

The white-throated kingfisher is easily identifiable because of its electric bluish-green tinged back and upper wings. It is large-headed, predominantly chestnut-brown, with a long, heavy, and pointed dark dull-red bill, and a conspicuous white throat extending across the breast. The males and females are identical.

It belongs to the genus Halcyon, which, according to legend, is a mythical bird which nests on the sea and is loved by the gods. It calms the waves as it breeds, bringing in halcyon or peaceful days.

It can often be found well away from water where it feeds on a wide range of prey that includes small reptiles, amphibians, crabs, small rodents and even birds. During the breeding season they call loudly in the mornings from prominent perches including the tops of buildings in urban areas or on wires.

Balkan Pierrot collecting Nectar.

Tarucus balkanicus, the Balkan Pierrot or little tiger blue, is a small butterfly that belongs to the lycaenids or blues family.

Due to its tail pattern being similar to eye shape, the predators are mislead when attacking the butterfly which gives him a chance to survive once more.

Breeding Male Purple Sunbird(Cinnyris asiaticus)

Tamil Name-ஊதாத் தேன்சிட்டு

Shot on @nikonindiaofficial
300mm  f6.3  1/160s  ISO100

The purple sunbird (Cinnyris asiaticus) is a small bird in the sunbird family found mainly in South and Southeast Asia but extending west into parts of the Arabian peninsula. They feed mainly on nectar, although they will also take insects, especially when feeding young. They have a fast and direct flight and can take nectar by hovering like a hummingbird but often perch at the base of flowers.

Come spring, March or April, breeding season begins, and you’ll see the plumage of the males transform into a beautiful dark purple with a metallic purplish-to green-blue head, mantle, and breast — which can sometimes have a maroon shine. It’ll turn back to its original colour approximately by June, once the breeding season ends, with blackish-blue upperparts and yellow underparts, a metallic blue shoulder patch with a glossy bluish-black central band running down from the throat till abdomen.

These birds are very vociferous and will call and will join to mob owls or other predators. The song is rapid rattle followed by ringing, metallic notes. 

In courtship displays the male raises his head, fans his tail and flutters with partly open wings that expose the pectoral tufts and sings before the female.

The oriental magpie-robin is considered as the national bird of Bangladesh.

Oriental magpie-robin (Copsychus saularis) 

Tamil Name-வண்ணாத்திக்குருவி,குண்டுக்கரிச்சான்

Bengali Name-Doyel or Doel

The Oriental magpie-robin (Copsychus saularis) is a small passerine bird that was formerly classed as a member of the thrush family Turdidae, but now considered an Old World flycatcher. They are distinctive black and white birds with a long tail that is held upright as they forage on the ground or perch conspicuously. Occurring across most of the Indian subcontinent and parts of Southeast Asia, they are common birds in urban gardens as well as forests. They are particularly well known for their songs .

Males sing from high perches during courtship. The display of the male involves puffing up the feathers, raising the bill, fanning the tail and strutting.They nest in tree hollows or niches in walls or building, often adopting nest boxes.

Congo or African Grey Parrot(Psittacus erithacus)

Grey parrots, commonly called African greys, are native to rainforests of central Africa, ranging in a band across the continent from Côte d’Ivoire to western Kenya. The largest parrot in Africa, this species has silver feathers, a white mask, and a bright, reddish tail. Males and females are very similar in appearance.

Their colors may be less stunning than other parrots, but African grays are bright in other ways: They’re among the smartest birds in the world and the greatest mimic of human speech among the 350 or so known parrot species. Research has shown that the birds possess cognitive skills equal to that of a five-year-old child. They will also help members of their species, even complete strangers, without expecting their altruism to be reciprocated.

The monogamous parrots, which mate for life, begin searching for mates between three and five years of age. 

Because of their intelligence and ability to mimic human speech, African grays are the most popular pet bird in the world. The birds breed well in captivity, and at least 1.3 million gray parrots that have been exported legally from Africa over the past four decades, particularly to countries in the Middle East. In 2018, the bird was listed as endangered by the International Union for Conservation of Nature.

Red-vented bulbul (Pycnonotus cafer)

Tamil Name-சின்னான் (செம்புழைக் கொண்டைக்குருவி)

The red-vented bulbul (Pycnonotus cafer) is a member of the bulbul family of passerines. It is a resident breeder across the Indian subcontinent, including Sri Lanka extending east to Burma and parts of Tibet. It has been introduced in many other parts of the world and has established itself in the wild on several Pacific islands including Fiji, Samoa, Tonga and Hawaii. It has also established itself in parts of the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain, the United States and Argentina.

In the state of Assam of India, the Bulbul  bird as it is known in Assamese, the male birds were held captive for a few days and were engaged in fights as a spectator sport in the Bihu festival during the Ahom rule.

This bird is popular in internet meme culture referencing the popular online multiplayer game Among Us, in which it is commonly used due to the phrase "Red Vented," which is used in the game to indicate an imposter using a network of underground tunnels to navigate the map.

Tamil Name-சாம்பல் கதிர்க்குருவி

The ashy prinia or ashy wren-warbler (Prinia socialis) is a small warbler in the family Cisticolidae.This prinia is a resident breeder in the Indian Subcontinent, ranging across most of India, Nepal, Bangladesh, Bhutan, Sri Lanka and western Myanmar. 

It is a common bird in urban gardens and farmland in many parts of India and its small size, distinctive colours and upright tail make it easy to identify. The northern populations have a rufous rump and back and have a distinct breeding and non-breeding plumage while other populations lack such variation.

Like most warblers, the ashy prinia is insectivorous.It also makes a sound like "electric sparks" during its fluttery flight, which is thought to be produced by the wings.

Oriental magpie-robin (Copsychus saularis) 

Tamil Name-வண்ணாத்திக்குருவி,குண்டுக்கரிச்சான்

The Oriental magpie-robin (Copsychus saularis) is a small passerine bird that was formerly classed as a member of the thrush family Turdidae, but now considered an Old World flycatcher. They are distinctive black and white birds with a long tail that is held upright as they forage on the ground or perch conspicuously. Occurring across most of the Indian subcontinent and parts of Southeast Asia, they are common birds in urban gardens as well as forests. They are particularly well known for their songs .

Males sing from high perches during courtship. The display of the male involves puffing up the feathers, raising the bill, fanning the tail and strutting.They nest in tree hollows or niches in walls or building, often adopting nest boxes.

Cattle Egret (Bubulcus ibis)

Tamil Name-உண்ணிக்கொக்கு

The cattle egret (Bubulcus ibis) is a cosmopolitan species of heron found in the tropics, subtropics, and warm-temperate zones.

 It is a white bird adorned with buff plumes in the breeding season. It nests in colonies, usually near bodies of water and often with other wading birds. The nest is a platform of sticks in trees or shrubs. Cattle egrets exploit drier and open habitats more than other heron species. Their feeding habitats include seasonally inundated grasslands, pastures, farmlands, wetlands, and rice paddies. 

It removes ticks and flies from cattle and consumes them. This benefits both species, but it has been implicated in the spread of tick-borne animal diseases.Breeding adult

Compact egret that often perches with its thick neck drawn in. Breeding adults have golden feathers on the head, breast, and back. Note short yellow bill and yellow legs.

Flock of Glossy ibis at Sunset.

Glossy ibis (Plegadis falcinellus) 

Tamil Name- 
அரிவாள் மூக்கன்,அன்றில்

The glossy ibis (Plegadis falcinellus) is a water bird in the order Pelecaniformes and the ibis and spoonbill family Threskiornithidae. The scientific name derives from Ancient Greek plegados and Latin, falcis, both meaning "sickle" and referring to the distinctive shape of the bill.

They show a preference for marshes at the margins of lakes and rivers but can also be found at lagoons, flood-plains, wet meadows, swamps, reservoirs, sewage ponds, paddies and irrigated farmland.

Glossy ibises feed in very shallow water and nest in freshwater or brackish wetlands with tall dense stands of emergent vegetation such as reeds, papyrus or rushes) and low trees or bushes.

Breeding Male Purple Sunbird(Cinnyris asiaticus)

Tamil Name-ஊதாத் தேன்சிட்டு

Shot on @nikonindiaofficial
300mm  f6.3  1/160s  ISO100

The purple sunbird (Cinnyris asiaticus) is a small bird in the sunbird family found mainly in South and Southeast Asia but extending west into parts of the Arabian peninsula. Like other sunbirds they feed mainly on nectar, although they will also take insects, especially when feeding young. They have a fast and direct flight and can take nectar by hovering like a hummingbird but often perch at the base of flowers.

The breeding male also has underparts of the same purplish black, but non-breeding males may show a central streak of black on yellow underparts.

The species is distributed widely from West Asia through the Indian subcontinent and into Southeast Asia. They are resident birds in most parts of their range and do not move large distances. They are found in thin forest and garden land, including those in dense urban areas.

These birds are very vociferous and will call and will join to mob owls or other predators. The song is rapid rattle followed by ringing, metallic notes. 

In courtship displays the male raises his head, fans his tail and flutters with partly open wings that expose the pectoral tufts and sings before the female.

Black drongo (Dicrurus macrocercus)

Tamil Name-இரட்டைவால் குருவி அல்லது கரிக்குருவி

The black drongo (Dicrurus macrocercus) is a small Asian passerine bird of the drongo family Dicruridae. It is a common resident breeder in Southern Asia.It feeds on insects, and is common in open agricultural areas and light forest throughout its range, perching conspicuously on a bare perch or along power or telephone lines. The species is known for its aggressive behaviour towards much larger birds, such as crows, never hesitating to dive-bomb any bird of prey that invades its territory. This behaviour earns it the informal name of king crow.
