Acacia Pied Barbet

Acacia Pied Barbet
The Acacia Pied Barbet is a smallish bird of 17-18cm. It has a red forehead and a white underside. It's head is black-and-white striped and yellow colouring above the eyes. Can be found one-one or in pairs in semi arid savannah. Similar in manner to a woodpecker, the Acacia Pied Barbet drills holes into dead wood in order to create cavity nests. (Bonthoutkapper - Tricolaema leucomelas)
