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 colorful 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 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 favorite food. They build their nest in the tree by making a hole in the tree trunk.

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 saw that Coppersmith barbet is a very beautiful and colorful 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 this birds.
