Red-headed Barbet (Eubucco bourcierii)

There’s no mistake when you see the brightly red head of the male red-headed barbet (Eubucco bourcierii), which stands out in the green of the forest.

Barbets of both the New and Old World have amazing songs, some with rhythms so precise they might be thought of as machines. This species commonly visits feeding stations where one can enjoy them up close, but their song is heard far and wide and as such you can hone in on them wherever they are.
