Yellow-fronted Barbet

Psilopogon flavifrons (Cuvier, 1816)

The yellow-fronted barbet is an Asian barbet, which is an endemic resident breeder in Sri Lanka, where it inhabits subtropical and tropical moist forests, wetlands, plantations and rural gardens up to an altitude of 2,000 m (6,600 ft). It has green plumage with a yellow crown and blue patches below the eyes, on the throat and the chin. It is 21–22 cm (8.3–8.7 in) long and weighs 57–60 g (2.0–2.1 oz). It feeds on berries, fruits and occasionally insects. It nests in a tree hole, where it lays 2-3 eggs. Source: Wikipedia
