Nice shot.
Looks like a 'white-cheeked barbet'

Thanks a lot M35, if you can suggest any android apps to help me identifying the birds, will be much appreciated.

Spider VS Ant. Who are Who? I couldn't make out. Both were motionless.

Yes.. It is a white cheeked barbet. There is a group in fb named bird watchers of Kerala. You can get info about all birds from there.

That is real soul food, Durango Dude! I haven't been to Kodaikanal yet, only heard folks raving about it - and now I fully endorse their view! Terrific.

This is eye-ball to eye-ball stuff - great capture, RajaTaurus! How did it end? I mean which one ended up eating the other?

Somehow, I found both dead, in the same position.

From the terrace last week, Lucknow, June 2017.
The squirrel and the shikra both fully aware of each other, with barely 20 ft separating the tree trunk & the fence. The squirrel has managed to dodge the shikra successfully so far - for the past few weeks! It quickly takes refuge in the foliage, which seems to foil the shikra's efforts – much to it’s embarrassment I’m sure.

That female Shikra is a juvenile probably trying to hone it's hunting skills! Good shot of the two! Hope you get a chance to see and capture the 'encounter' too!

Yes, I have the same suspicion - a pair of shikras (possibly the same pair) have been nesting in the same tree for the past couple of seasons & I have posted a few photos of them earlier. I am no ornithologist, but it seems that this one is definitely slimmer than the nesting pair. So yes Durango Dude, you are probably right! And as for the 'encounter', I'll be honest & say that my best wishes are with the squirrel, hoping that it survives!
