Golden-fronted Leafbird
Photographer : © Abhishek Mukherjee
Location :Ganeshgudi, Karnataka, India
Date : 26 October 2012
English synonyms:Golden-fronted Chloropsis, Gold-fronted Chloropsis, Golden Fronted Chloropsis, Golden Fronted Leafbird
Bird Family :Irenidae - Fairy-bluebirds & Leafbirds
Red Data Status :Least Concern
Remarks :There seemed to be two individuals in the vicinity. At least one of them (may have been both) seemed to have strongly claimed three or four flowering bushes as its own. Whenever it saw any other species approaching any of those bushes, it seemed to vociferously and aggressively drive out the intruder. I was not able to make out if both individuals participated in this activity or only one of them carried out this duty. A Crimson-Backed Sunbird was repeatedly driven out from these bushes in the time we spent observing. - AM
