[Notas - Normas] Nota do Artista
From my trip to Ecuador.


The Red-headed Barbet is a spectacularly colored, small barbet of montane forest. The male's brilliant red head and breast contrast with the green upper parts and horn-colored bill. The female lacks the red, and has pearly blue-gray cheeks. This species is conspicuous as it moves about middle and upper strata with mixed flocks or feeds in fruiting trees. Its song, a purring trill, is also loud and distinctive. The Red-headed Barbet feeds primarily on fruit, but also take arthropods, which it sometimes gathers by searching through dead leaf clusters. The nest is an enlarged woodpecker cavity or a self-excavated hole in a rotting tree.

The females are similar in body color, but with a different coloration in the head; they have a golden collar around the back of the head, with a light blue patch below each eye. The female is more golden underneath as well. Both sexes have a large, cream-colored bill and a small black eye streak.

AHA! Dear Peter, what a lucky moment :) I was uploading a barbet from African continent and then saw your Neotropical Barbet from Ecuador. How amazing intersecting species crossroads. Let's wait a barbet species from Asia now just after us and it will be a trilogy :)

Amazing bird, today is the day of females ;)
