Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

A green barbet found only in southern India. Note the dark brown head and characteristic white patterns on its face: a white patch around the ear-coverts, a white line above the eye, and a white throat. Also not the brown neck and breast with white streaks. Immature is duller and has less well-defined patterns on the face than adults. Heard more often that seen; constantly calls “kutrook-kutrook-kutrook” in mid-day hours from all kinds of wooded patches from small parks and homesteads to wet evergreen forests.
