Acacia Pied Barbet

Tricholaema leucomelas (near endemic)

The Acacia pied barbet is a near-endemic species to southern Africa, and occurs predominantly in semi-arid savanna.

I first recorded this species in September 2010 while on a game drive in Suikerbosrand Nature Reserve, south east Gauteng. Our best photographs of this species, however, were taken in July 2012 while staying at Daan Viljoen Game Reserve near Windhoek, Namibia.
