Crested barbet (Trachyphonus vaillantii)
The crested barbet is a sub-Saharan bird in the Lybiidae family. With its thick bill and very colourful plumage the crested barbet is unmistakable. The crested barbet feeds on insects, other birds’ eggs and fruits and sometimes mice. They are found singly or in pairs. They like to bounce around on the
ground looking for food, they usually call from a branch out in the
open. They do not fly easily and then only for short distances. Crested
barbets roost in holes in trees.
