Fire-tufted Barbet

The Fire-tufted Barbet is a species of barbet found in Indonesia and Malaysia. They have a pretty green plumage with deep green backs and pretty lime green breasts. Males, like our Birdorable version here, have a tuft of red feathers above the beak.

Fire-tufted Barbets feed on figs and other fruits, as well as insects. They are resident birds in their range (non-migratory) and remain relatively sendentary throughout their lifespan.
