On Monday I decided to video a Crested Barbet at its early morning song. With the bird perched ever so high in a Syringa tree, I had no lean for my elbows as I recorded this bird's call. I hope you can look past the shakiness and enjoy the Barbet's vibrating bill and chest while it called out the early morning greeting.
The Crested Barbet's yellow face speckled with red; black crest and chest band make it easily identifiable. It's the largest barbet in the area. Its call is a loud and sustained unmusical trill: t-r-r-r-r-r-r-r-r likened to an alarm clock.

Have a great day!
