there is this beautiful bird that visited my garden only four times. the first time when i stepped out of my door, i saw the bird sitting on the hibiscus plant branch. the second and the third time i saw it when i came home from college and by the time i got my cell phone out to take a pic it flew away. the last time i saw it was on my window, unknown to me for a few min, it was perched on the window and busy grooming itself and when i took my cell phone to take a shot it flew away. this bird has a horn like feather on its head like a Mohawk. it starts from the head and moves upwards and slightly curves towards its back ( like a horn of cow ). it was medium brown in color and had this prominent thing on it. a white small strip and a red small strip below its eyes. first white then red. i tried searching the name of this bird on Google but was not able to find hence i would like to know which bird is it from u guys. thank you
