Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

Large, colorful barbet with a huge ivory-colored bill. Note the red underparts and red bar across the wing. Usually found in the vicinity of fig trees in a variety of habitats, including woodland, gardens, cultivated areas, and forest edge. Most often in pairs or small groups. The calls are rather insect-like: a very fast, dry trill, and a raspy “crick” note. Similar to Bearded Barbet, but separated by the lack of a black chest band. Separated from Black-breasted Barbet by the red rather than black chest.
