Megalaima viridis


The White-cheeked Barbet (Scientific name: Megalaima viridis) “is very similar to the more widespread Brown-headed Barbet (Megalaima zeylanica) but this species has a distinctive supercilium and a broad white cheek stripe below the eye and is endemic to the forest areas of the Western Ghats and adjoining hills” (Wiki).
