Whyte’s Barbet

Stactolaema whytii

The Whyte’s Barbet is a largely brown, woodland barbet with a white chin, white malar mark and 2 white wing patches. It is found in Mozambique, Malawi, Tanzania, Zambia and Zimbabwe.

I first saw this Barbet in the miombo woodland outskirts of Dzanlanyama Forest in Malawi. We found them at their nest site, which afforded great views and photographs.
