Coppersmith Barbet

The Coppersmith Barbet is a species of the barbet family and is found on the Indian sub-continent and some parts of South-east Asia. As a colourful bird with a metronomic sound, these birds are found foraging over small berries, fruits and insects. These birds roam solo or in small groups. Coppersmith Barbets are one of the few species in which both sexes of one family carry out incubation.
