Crested Barbet

Prev Next

Crested Barbet Trachyphonus vaillantii, Kruger National Park. The call of this bird is a loud and sustained trill tr-r-r-r-r-r-r-r-r-r-r-r-r-r-r-r-r....., a sound we frequently hear in our garden. Unfortunately I've never been able to photograph one of the resident birds.

    Kuifkophoutkappertjie. Van ver is hy pragtig, maar wat 'n voorreg om hom deur jou van naby te kan sien en sy volmaakte prag te beleef. Dankie, Gerda.

    Great composition. This is a much more attractive image of this bird compared to the images in my handbook.

    Pragtig gedoen! Ek hou meer van die die "crop" soos wat jy hom het.

    Mooi foto Gerda. Ook 'n mooi veredos, hulle kan soms so gehawend lyk. Stem met Willie, die voel kyk op en lyk beter soos jy ge"crop" het.
