Vieillot’s Barbet

Lybius vieilloti

The Vieillot’s Barbet is a small African barbet with a red head and a mixture of red and white on its neck and breast. Unlike other barbets it duets throughout the year and not just in breeding season.

I first saw this species while birding at a lodge on the banks of the Benoue River in north east Cameroon.
