Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

Large emerald-green barbet with a heavy dark bill. Unlike many barbets, exhibits strong sexual dimorphism: male has yellow, black, blue, and red facial patches, while the female only has blue and red. Like other barbets, can be difficult to spot up in the canopy. Listen for its songs, an incessant series of gulping, concise hoots, or a string of trilling that eventually slows and lapses into hoots; notes have a “tapping” quality different from that of the more resonant Red-crowned Barbet. Inhabits all manner of forested lowland habitats, from primary tracts of forest to parks and gardens.
