I was tempted to give an ID of M. asiatica, not sure I could pin it down that far though. I think this is a subadult bird which makes things s bit more complicated.

Barbet ID.... Tricky!

Hi Ray, through the features available in the photo I narrowed it down to M. asiatica and M. incognita (Moustached Barbet) but as there is no visible 'moustache' (visible on juveniles too I believe) and sporting blue throat and cheeks I opted for M. asiatica.

Could Be

I said on rgrassbylewis' other posting I’m not a huge expert on East Asian birds so I’m totaly open to your suggestion Richard.

I am glad I’m not the only one up at silly o’clock pondering these things tho :-)

rgrassbylewis, also Richard, welcome to iSpot. Enjoy.
