Artist's Description

Crested Barbets are common in Southern Africa. They are also found in Zimbabwe, Mozambique, Botswana and Northern Namibia.
The Crested Barbet (Trachyphonus vaillantii) (‘trachys’=rough, ‘phone’=voice, sound’) is a sub-Saharan bird in the Lybiidae family. (Wikipedia)
With its thick bill and and very colourful plumage the Crested Barbet is unmistakeable. 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.
