Versicolored Barbet Eubucco versicolor


The Versicolored Barbet is a common member of mixed-species flocks in middle to high elevation forest on the east side of the Andes in Bolivia and Peru. This species is sexually dimorphic, and specializes in foraging on dried leaf clusters. Though a canopy forager, the Versicolored Barbet is brightly colored and not shy, making it easy to see throughout its range.
