Thank you very much.

Oh yeah it was tough and i was very excited and nervous as it was my first safari with full gear (DSLR + Telephoto). I am happy I was able to capture them and them came good

Quite possible. I am from central Malabar area and there we call this bird Kuttichoolan (with sharp 't', 'kutti' as in stub not as in child. The second part choolan could have come from the word choolam (whistle). But the myth holds good there too.
