Gold Whiskered Barbet

Spotted this Gold Whiskered Barbet on a feasting frenzy ...so many to choose from. Mike the Birder had spotted some nesting activity recently, check it out.

This bird is very well camouflaged with its green plumage and he stays quiet throughout which is not how they usually are.

Haven't been to the regular trail for a few weeks, Hmmm the trees are fruiting. Nice barbets and photos (the 3rd one is especially good).
