This massive and regal bird is the White-tailed Eagle, otherwise known as the Sea Eagle or Ern (Haliaeetus albicilla). With a body length measuring between 26–37 inches and a wingspan of 5.8–8.0 ft, this isn't exactly a little chickadee. These birds are close cousins of the North American Bald Eagle and they occupy about the same ecological niche, just in Eurasia instead.

The Coppersmith Barbet, Crimson-breasted Barbet or Coppersmith (Megalaima haemacephala), is a bird with crimson forehead and throat which is best known for its metronomic call that has been likened to a coppersmith striking metal with a hammer. It is a resident found in the Indian Subcontinent and parts of Southeast Asia.
Rufous Hummingbird. The feistiest hummingbird in North America. The brilliant orange male and the green-and-orange female Rufous Hummingbird are relentless attackers at flowers and feeders, going after (if not always defeating) even the large hummingbirds of the Southwest, which can be double their weight. Rufous Hummingbirds are wide-ranging, and breed farther north than any other hummingbird.
