“On the morning of 5th December 2012, a Lineated Barbet (Megalaima lineata) was perched on a high branch of a tall tree in Perak, Peninsular Malaysia (above).
“It was starting the day by carefully preening itself (above).
“Towards the conclusion of its preening routine, it also stretched its wings (above).
“A brief video clip of its preening behaviour may be previewed below:”
