Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

Brightly colored, yellow-billed barbet. Found in dense secondary growth, especially in bamboo and around water. Males are olive green above, with a yellow belly and extensive red hood that fades into the breast and back; females are similar, but with a yellow breast and throat. The lack of red on the lower breast of females helps distinguish them from similar male Lemon-throated Barbets. Song is an even-paced series of low hoots.
