Red-crowned Barbet Megalaima raffflesii
Panti Forest, Malaysia
27 February 2013
This Red-crowned Barbet played hide-and-seek with us for several minutes and we were never able to get a really good picture. However, these two images enable you to see what a dazzling bird this is. The tree in which the barbet was perched was host to many other species also and we spent the best part of an hour enjoying a great variety of stunning Asian birds.
