  1. Shri the first one is an Indian Roller Bird for sure. I wonder if the second one is the same bird in flight?

    The third one is an Indian Pond Heron.

    Fifth one is a common kingfisher.

    Seventh one to me looks like an egret.

    All ids to the best of my knowledge, some could be wrong!

  2. Thanks Anjan

    Thanks Mridula. Updated the post with name and credit

  3. I think that yellow brested small bird is Purple Rumped sunbird but too far to identify with confidence.

    For that egret just google egret in google images and see there are close matches!

  4. I should have said 'Great Egret' as the name and not just egret.
