Gold –Whiskered Barbets: 24 carats!

15th November 2009, Taman Rimba Ampang, Selangor

Gold –Whiskered Barbets (Megalaima chrysopogon) were out in numbers and we saw at least 4 feeding on  one tree.


I was pointing my camera at the birds across the stream  and didn’t realise she was  less than 10 feet  away from me above my head. This is the closest I’ve got to this barbet.
