Barbican breasted red

Author 'Nicoledesplat' (Id 198800 ) : In the tropical greenhouse of Beauval where exotic birds are free, I saw this bird that I had never seen, it is a 'Barbican breasted Red'.
It is recognized in the vibrissae to the base of its beak.
In some species, the clump is reduced but in this species in West Africa, it looks like a beard, which gave him his name.
Living in the woodlands and wooded savannas south of the Sahara, the barbican hops along the branches of the wild fig trees and other fruit trees that feed it.
Black, red and white, it has a beach of yellow skin around the eyes, and a strong beak with strong grooves.
This gives the nozzle a serrated edge, useful for food and dig out the dead trees.
Some of these holes are used as dormitory and other nest.
The female lays two eggs, which hatch after 16jrs.
The young are fed on insects in order to stimulate growth and demand 6sem.

The world is full of beautiful birds, but the birds of the Tropics are beautiful, how beautiful, and often curious, it that forgot to shave , thank you again for your comment

A very beautiful bird, too bad the foliage falls in front of his head, but I understand that we can only, alas, not always do as we would like in this kind of situation. I'm going to spend a retouch just for the fun of it.

I paid for a touch up this photo for me also, but I like you on this new picture found too many pixels apparent that stood out, and on yours, I did not like the contour of the spout 'black', I preferred to drop it and leave the bird as well :a 20: more lest it flies away, I triggered the npc just slightly a little offbeat without being too make any sudden movements, always for the same reason, not easy with his birds wild, thank you all the same Nenfer.

Excellent decision. Damage to the sprig of greenery.
What a joy to be able to discover such beautiful creatures.

As I said to Nenfer, I myself have done a touch-up about this but not satisfied with the results because too many pixels were evident, it was not terrible, so I dropped and yet in spite of everything in this photo, I shifted gently without too much of sudden movements so as not to frighten this curious bird, so I have to put aside even more of the foliage than there was, thank you Ninik for your comment.
