Collared Kingfisher – still around

The Collared KF is still around. Although he was constantly harassed by White-throated kf, Black-naped Oriole , Plaintive Cuckoo and Linated Barbet,  he/she is more comfortable than the first day I observed.

This morning I heard the collared giving a sharp screaming note when the Oriole was chasing him several circles round the small ‘cuckoo’ field.  A juv. Tiger Shrike was seen joining the Collared flying round the field.  After careful observing the parents, the adults were protecting their 2 juvs.
