A New Bird Spotted

Coppersmith Barbet
Megalaima haemacephala

Was observating from our backyard in our Klang home.
Since there were many 'bird-waves' around six large trees, we decided to do a close observation.
The species spotted were Mynah, Hill Mynah, Yellow Vented Bulbul, Starlings, Sunbirds and a new comer....the Coppersmith Barbet. This lovely little fellow is green in color with a bright Red crown, yellow markings at the top and bottom of the eyes, spotted chest markings. It is already a week and we have already made 18 sightings.
Lovely bird.
Who says Klang has no nice birds?
