Birds In motion....

Hello folks, I have got a few birds to show you, all in video. I simply didn't manage to make any good stills this week.

Here's a Shikra tearing at an Oriental Garden Lizard that it snatched off the ground in my garden. Not a very good video, you can't see what the bird id eating, or the bird it self properly because of the impossible place it perched on our t tree,   but I thought I'd post it anyway.

Shikra (Accipiter badius)

This is an endemic Ceylon Small Barbet.

This Common Tailorbird was  on our Hibiscus plant.

Finally, a Black-rumped Flameback Woodpecker, also filmed in my garden.
