  1. Yes, this bird is quite a common bird at my backyard.Size at 30cm, the largest of the sixteen species of barbets in Southeast Asia.

  2. Beautiful shot, Tabib. I was also thinking this bird looks a lot like our Kingfishers, with that oversized and seemingly powerful bill. Are they fishing birds?
