Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

Small and distinctive dark-brown-and-white barbet. The amount of white on the face varies geographically, but there is always a white stripe behind the eye. Found in forest, forest edge, moist woodland, and moist scrub. Usually in small and vocal groups; often perched in prominent dead trees. The call is an agitated “kiik” that is often repeated. Separated from other barbets by the white ear patch and lack of yellow or olive-green tones to the plumage.
