Аскар Исабеков: Hello Paul. I was in Kerala in Oct-Dec, it was a good time for birding. But I can to say nothing about birding in August, sorry. In August 2018 there was the big flood in Kerala, because a lot of showers, so I can guess August no so good time.

Dibyendu Ash: Surely a Golden-fronted LB. In north-east Indian ssp. the amount of orange in the forecrown is more and in southern Indian nominate race it is less in contrast.


2019-01-13. to photo # 03560000802 (Golden-fronted Leafbird)

Elena Shnayder: I'd like to have some comments about my ID of this bird. I decided that's C.aurifrons based only on a bluish wash on the shoulders and a glimpse of gold on a forehead that is mostly out of sight. Are there other reliable features? Maybe a shape and a [....]

Elena Shnayder: I'm not 100% sure I made a correct ID of the species. Because of a very pale (pinkish) bill-tip, I have a doubt.

Ahdrew Bazdyrev: Очень уж мощные клюв и ноги для индийской камышевки - скорее кто-то из тростниковых.
