Coppersmith Barbets Psilopogon haemacephalus
Through the green-auburn foliage of a peepal tree, Bhavik Thaker witnessed the courtship behaviour of a pair of Coppersmith Barbets Psilopogon haemacephalus. Here we see a male singing and dancing, to impress the female, which was also enticed with fruits and flowers.
