The Brown Barbet
Today is the first time I encountered the Brown Barbet ( Calorhampus fuliginosus). Two pairs of it were hunting for insects and the fruits of the Eugenia oleina. It was a bit drizzly and they perched on twigs and branches of a dead tree at Zone C nearby the Jackfruit and Eugenia trees. I include this bird among the small to medium-sized birds at the park. What was obvious to me was the broad bill and stout body of the barbet. Then I could clearly see the red feet. I noticed too that the underparts are a pale brown to grey from the neck to breast. The upperpart of the body is brown.
