[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The Bearded Barbet is an African barbet. Barbets and toucans are a group of near passerine birds with a worldwide tropical distribution. The barbets get their name from the bristles which fringe their heavy bills. It is an arboreal species of gardens and wooded country which eats fruit, although the young are fed on insects. It nests in a tree hole, laying 2 white eggs.

The species has been identified by Srikumar Balial ( Hotelcalifornia ) Thank you Srikumar !
