Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

Restricted to montane forest in a tiny corner of southern Peninsular Thailand, this brightly-colored tree-dweller is nonetheless not uncommon within its limited range and habitat. Very similar in appearance to Blue-throated Barbet, but ranges do not overlap; also note present species’ thick black line behind the eye, and its paler throat. Song is similar to that of Blue-throated Barbet, a hollow knocking series of notes: “bu-goh-goh-goh, bu-goh-goh-goh.” Also gives a similarly hollow-sounding trill which may transition into song.
