Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

Bright leaf-green barbet with a streaked head and a pale yellow-green ear patch. Heavy gunmetal-gray bill is sharp-tipped and brutal-looking. Lineated Barbet lacks the green ear and has a pale yellowish bill. Like many other barbets, Green-eared keeps to the canopy, where it can be difficult to detect due to its relatively slow and sluggish behavior. Typically inhabits lowland and foothill forest interiors. Song is a series of rapid-fire hollow notes.
