Megalaima faiostricta (Green-eared Barbet)

Wikipedia Abstract

The green-eared barbet (Psilopogon faiostrictus) is an Asian barbet. Barbets are a group of near passerine birds with a worldwide tropical distribution. They get their name from the bristles which fringe their heavy bills. The green-eared barbet is a resident breeder in southern China, Cambodia, Laos, Thailand and Vietnam. It is a species of broadleaf evergreen and mixed or open woodlands at up to 900 m altitude. It nests in a tree hole. The male’s territorial call is a loud took-a-prruk. Another call is a mellow pooouk. \n* Megalaima faiostricta - Khao Yai National Park, Thailand \n*
