Saw this wonderful bird in Coonoor at the All India Sunday School Union Campus where we spent a month in April 2007. She had her nest in the gap between the roof and the wall and would daily fly out and return with food in her beak. The picture is not mine. The 3X Finepix did not give me such favors. But it was a joy to watch her everyday! And yes, she did raise her hood from time to time.
