Juvenile D'Arnaud's Barbets in sunset

D'Arnaud's barbet is a small East African bird that feeds on insects, fruits, and seeds.

It grows to about eight inches, and is equally at home in trees or on the ground. A vertical tunnel two to three feet into the ground with a sideways and upward turn leads to the nest chamber.

In a striking dance the male and female face each on nearby twigs and twitch, bob and sing like mechanical toys.
