Coppersmith Barbet Pictures and Detail

I have always loved the green-colored birds because I have grown with Rose-ringed Parakeets around me. I came to know about Barbet birds when I started taking bird pictures. Coppersmith Barbet is the fourth barbet whom I captured through my camera. Earlier, I took pictures of Brown-headed barbet, Blue-throated Barbet, and Great Barbet. I captured this bird in Punjab.

The scientific name of these birds is Psilopogon Haemacephalus and they are also known as Crimson-breasted Barbet and Coppersmith. This barbet belongs to the Asian subcontinent (India, Srilanka, etc.) and it can be easily found in the Indian subcontinent. You can recognize a barbet bird around by his peculiar and sharp calls. Barbet birds are very small birds; however, very beautiful and colourful birds.

Like other barbet birds, Coppersmith barbet also has a short neck, short tail, and a big head as compared to the body. It is usually a hard task to find a barbet because it can move away fast on your still movement. This barbet commonly eats fruits, however, they also like insects like termites. Different types of berries are their favourite food. They build their nest in the tree by making a hole in the tree trunk.

Coppersmith Barbet is a small green-coloured bird with a red head and yellow throat. We can also find yellow colour around its eyes. The size of the coppersmith barbet is between 15-17 cm. We can find 9 subspecies of the Coppersmith Barbet which vary slightly in the description. It is a common bird in Northern India and can be found in the outer reaches of the Himalayas.

Their breeding season is February to April in India and December to September in Sri Lanka. Each female bird can give up to four eggs in a single season. They make tuk tuk ... calls by inflating their throats without opening their beak. 

Overall, I can see that Coppersmith Barbet is a very beautiful and colourful small bird and I feel fortunate to get the chance to take his pictures. In the future, I hope to get chances to capture pictures of these birds. 

 The Coppersmith Barbet is a small bird that is native to South and Southeast Asia. Here are some important facts about this bird:

 Behaviour: These birds are known for their distinctive call, which sounds like a metallic hammer striking metal (hence the name "Coppersmith"). They are also known for their ability to excavate their own nesting holes in trees. 

 Breeding: Coppersmith Barbets breed during the summer months, typically laying 2-4 eggs in their nesting hole. Both the male and female participate in incubating the eggs and caring for the young.
