    Looks like the Golden-fronted Leafbird (Chloropsis aurifrons)..

    It appears to me as a Male Blue-winged Leafbird (Chloropsis cochinchinensis).

    [Race distributed in peninsular India which lacks blue in wing and tail, is treated as a species in The Ripley guide:Jerdon's Leafbird (Chloropsis jerdoni)].
    Nice image. Lovely contrast in colours. Thanks for sharing.SaktiWild

    Nice feeding pose captured. Good eye contact. Wish the light was less harsh. Giving a slight -ve EC would have been good. Thanks for sharing.

    Nice to see this species. The green colour of the leaf bird merges with the leaves. Thanks for sharing.

    Cheers,

    with the hint of golden yellow visible on the head just below the eye in this Image, makes me go with Golden fronted leaf bird. One of my wish list. Shakti Da can you please further clarify with your reasoning?

    Bapat Saheb, do you have any other image of this??.. just to confirm the ID.
