Brown-headed Barbets are residents of my garden.

Due to its colour, and its preference for rather dense trees, it becomes difficult to spot! Its cry, on the other hand, lacks music, and rhythm, and is rather loud, and like a flute playing lower notes going off-key...

This shot has some noise, for which I apologise.

I hope that should help you spot it rather easily...

As I've mentioned earlier, this Garden Series is a dedication to my sister, Caroline!

Thanks for stopping by!

Hi Bro,

I'll have to come to your garden to take pictures! Still nothing of interest here except all of the baby quails. The sounds in your garden must be as wonderful as the sights! This Barbet is fascinating to see. I love his eye, beak, and the feathers standing out around his face. A wonderful pose on the tree with the pretty leaves and the lovely blue sky for a background.


Hi Goldy,

And that in your garden.

Hi Goldy,
Wonderful shot of this cute and beautiful bird....they always are so busy and you have done well to freeze it here. The blue sky acts as a fine backdrop. Very neat with lovely colours all round. Kudos.

Hi Goldy,
what a beauty in a lovely and pretty pose. the bird is so clear and the whiskers are seen. i like the combination of the branch, as it gives a good visual presentation along with the soft blue sky.


Goldy merhaba,ne güzel bahçen varmış,bizleride bahçende ağırlaman çok güzel.Bahçeden kuş seslerini dinler gibiyim,ellerine sağlık :)

Bonjour Goldy !
Une très belle image d'un oiseau que je ne connaissais pas, merci de me le faire découvrir ! J'aime bien la manière dont il est perché sur cete branche recouverte de feuilles vertes, avec le ciel bleu en BG. Jolie composition, couleurs bien naturelles, excellent POV. Félicitations !

Hello Goldy,

Best regards

Bonjour Goldy
Vous auusi vous avez de superbes oiseaux que nous n'avons pas chez nous, la preuve c'est ce barbu à sourcil jaune que tu as réussie a photographier avec de beaux details, cette phot est superbement composée avec des couleurs naturelles
Merci pour le partage

hello Goldy

beautiful photo of the Brown-headed Barbet with fine POV
that in French we say « en contre-plongé », appropriate vertical framing,
excellent sharpness and details, TFS

p.s. i was happy to read in FRENCH
your critique on one of my photos

Hi Goldy,

The point of viuew is allowing us to see the details and colors of the brown-headeds barbet. The leaves and branches are framing well the bird. The light has a good effect on the colors of the picture. Have a nice day.
