White cheeked Barbet

Spotted this white cheeked Barbet, in our backyard, snacking on these berries. It was quite a delight to see the bird, choosing the juiciest of the berries by pre-tasting them, before plucking it.
I have seen these birds, making hole in soft trunked trees to make their nests. This Barbet, along with its partner is a frequent visitor to our backyard.
