[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The blue-throated barbet (Megalaima asiatica) is an Asian barbet, seen across the Indian subcontinent and Southeast Asia. Barbets and toucans are a group of near passerine birds with a world-wide tropical distribution. The barbets get their name from the bristles which fringe their heavy bills; this species eats fruits and insects.
