I photographed this Crested Barbet in Felixton, Zululand. They feed on insects, other birds' eggs and fruits.Crested Barbets are aggressive towards other birds in their territory and chase off both nest competitors such as other Barbets and other birds such as doves and thrushes. They have also been recorded to have attacked rats and killed snakes. They belong to the woodpecker family.
Thanx again for every vote and comment on my Canola upload yesterday - and a special thanx to Eric and Lynette for their treasured UA's and to Ronnie for his excellent mod !!
Have a fabulous Friday !!

OOOW Herman, who knitted that outfit for him Grin Some body once told me that the more colourful the bird the more aggressive it is likely to be; don't know if that is true, but it seems to fit the bill here. [It's the medicine, side effects listed include silly puns]

A fine specimen you have caught here, nice of him to sit and pose for you............. All this colour at such an early time in the morning has the same effect as caffeine, sets you for the day.
