At the end of each bird description, I will give the 2 letter code where the photo was taken.
There are 15 species of New World barbets. They are small colorful fruit eating birds with heavy bills. They are closely related to the toucans. The 6" male Red-headed Barbet (Eubucco bourcierii) has a bright red head, green back, yellow belly and a yellow bill. I had photographed him before, but this was a better photo. MI
