This is one of the most unique birds I really love to watch; the aerodynamics design is weird, but yet, this bird can really fly with style. There are a lot of variants of the Barbet and each one is a beauty to behold. Barbets also call in a very distinct way, you can always tell a Barber’s call. This Lineated Barbet is what it is because of the lines on its body made by its feathers.
We caught one of this one time and it bit me several times, well, if they could bore a hole through a trunk or a branch of a tree, then they have powerful beaks to bite. Straightforward jpeg and absent enhancements.
