Lineated Barbet – prey for young

posted in: bird, Feeding chicks | 0

I observed a Lineated Barbet (Megalaima lineata hodgsoni) that was nesting, hunting for prey for the juveniles. It explored the crown of a Sea Almond Tree (Terminalia catappa) and inspected under a number of the leaves; managed to get a large insect (see inset) for the young. I am unsure of ID of this insect.
