Kuifkophoutkapper / Crested Barbet

Elizabeth Kendall

Bronkhorstspruit, South Africa

Artist's Description

With its thick bill and very colourful plumage the Crested Barbet is unmistakable. This small bird has a speckled yellow and red face with a small black crest. The belly is yellow with red speckles, wings are black with white specks and it has a broad black band on its neck. Yellow head and body with black and white feathers, red markings on end of body, its colour blends well in the bush. They have a distinct shrill.
I took this photo in my garden this morning. Was so excited, because these birds are not so easy to see…but this one must have been very thirsty! (Gauteng, South Africa)
