Unknown Bird!

(Mumbai, Maharashtra, India)

Hi! I live in Mumbai, India. I came across this bird sitting on electricity wire when I was on a weekend trip in Satara District which falls in Maharashtra state in India. The rainy season is over and winter is about to start here. It was a bright and sunny afternoon when I noticed this bird. Its a small bird. There was one more of the same species sitting beside it. I clicked an snap of the two, however, the image was blurred as I could not zoom properly.


Please help me identify the bird.

Thank you!

Regards,
Suhas

We were just in Jaipur for vacation and think it is a green bee-eater.
