What a fabulous bird that is!

There is a wonderful new bird pavilion at London Zoo. There were bulbuls and sunbirds there, close relatives of the ones we see in our own garden.

The Blue Magpie in reference is the Red Billed.The Yellow billed Blue Magpie is found at higher altitudes (1600-2700 mtrs)than the Red billed (foothills - 1600 mtrs)

Mridula the red bird is the Crimson Sunbird (male) and yes the first one is the Oriental Magpie Robin.

Nick as Himalayan Hippie says it is Crimson Sunbird, because a guest staying there said so.

Himalayan Hippe, thanks once again. Where are your bird photos?

If I go to UK again I am targetting the lake District this time but no concrete visits in view as of now.

When I was returning from Leh to Manali. Around Rohtang pass, we saw several eagle like birds.. They were white colored on stomach side and quite large in size.
Does anyone have idea which birds are they?
They were in pretty good numbers.
If anyone has picture, please attach here.

Wild guess: a young hornbill?

I have no idea what a young hornbill looks like, but if I had to imagine one....

If you find my posts confrontationist, please bear, I am an old frustrated guy who has nothing better to do than sit on rocking chair and curse the world whole day
