Gold-whiskered Barbet

The Gold-whiskered Barbet is the largest barbet in Borneo and probably the loudest.  The subspecies M. c. chrysopsis has a broad black facemask ending in blue.  Found in lowland and hill forests but more often heard than seen.

    Oh… barbet is always the bird I want to see. I only saw brown barbet once in Bukit Padang.
