Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

Small, green barbet with a red forehead, light orange markings around the eye, blue sides to the face, and unstreaked belly. Usually located by incessant calls, given from the treetops. Occurs in open wooded areas, gardens, forest and forest edge in the lowlands and foothills, where typically encountered as singles or pairs. Most abundant in the wet zone, but occurs locally in the dry zone. Separated from Yellow-fronted Barbet by smaller size and red forehead, and from Coppersmith Barbet in lacking streaks below. Song is an incessant “pop-pop-pop-pop…”, while faster call notes are also given, “opopopopop”.
