I hold my breath to capture this beauty.

A bullet stifle my joy.

The picture is taken in our garden in India. This is female asian koel ( kokeela) (Eudynamys scolopaceus). Koel is a member of the cuckoo order of birds, the Cuculiformes. It is found in the Indian Subcontinent, China, and Southeast Asia.

The Asian koel is a brood parasite that lays its eggs in the nests of crows and other hosts, who raise its young.
