Bar-throated Siva on rhodendron flower, Singalila National Park, West Bengal, India

Enlarging this photo to full size, pollen grains from the rhododendron flowers can be seen on the feathers of the bird's head. Birds are the main pollinators of early-flowering rhododendrons at higher elevations of the eastern Himalayas, and it is fairly to observe 10 or 12 bird species on a single rhododendron tree or shrub.
