I agree with the id. But the last two pictures perhaps represent a different cultivar, like this one.

In this pix, a Blue Throated Barbet is sitting on a flowering tree.
Please help me for ID of the tree. I think it is not Heliconia.
Yes …! It is Heliconia humilis. I think in common parlance it is known as bird of paradise. It is ad makers’ darling.
I think its common name is Parrots Beak – and I am not too sure if that belongs to the Heliconia group. Bird of Paradise, which is a Heliconia, is distinctly different from this.
…! I checked up from Wilkepedia. Yes Bird of Paradise belongs to sterilitzia group. What … saw very much from the heliconia group. It is also known as False Bird of Paradise. Other common names are lobster claw and wild plantain.
