Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

Small, stout barbet of Borneo’s wet foothill and montane forest. Like most other barbets, sluggish and difficult to spot in the canopy. Listen for its song, a rapidfire series of hollow clucking notes that sounds distinctly unbirdlike. If seen well, note its short dark bill, bright yellow face spot, black throat, and red-and-black crown; this combination of features separates it from all other barbets in its habitat.
