Home Alphabetical Maps Taxonomic Links/Resources





The red-and-yellow barbets are common in dry bushed grassland and are often seen around termite mounds and picnic grounds as in many of these images. The female has a speckled crown while the male crown is black. All of the images above were taken in Tarangire and Lake Manyara NPs except the right lower, taken in Mkomazi NP. Juveniles are similar to adults except the red is paler. Click the image above to see a slideshow which includes a nest.
