This tiny barbet had me puzzled. She’s about the size of a Coppersmith barbet , but she didn’t have the streaks on the breast and the facial markings. What could it be?
Again this place has revealed another gem with this juvenile Blue-Eared Barbet (Megalaima australis) local name: Takor Akar. Being a juvenile the colours, especially around the face are not fully developed yet.
This fruit is a favourite of most Barbets.
A tinge of blue and the black collar have already appeared at the throat. Hopefully I will get to see the adult bird soon.
