Bearded Barbet

(Lybius dubius)
The Bearded Barbet is one of the largest members of the Barbet family. It is uncommon and localised prefering riverine forest and woodland in dry savanna areas. Parties often gather at fruiting trees. The pair in the photos were very vocal but unfortunately high up in a tall tree which gave a nasty silhouetted photo in harsh light conditions. The photos were taken on the long approach dirt track to the Campement du Buffle Noir in Benoue National Park. Video clip on http://ibc.hbw.com/ibc/index.html
