Description:

Seen in a loquat tree in my garden. There is a flock of them that fly over my house every evening in a South westerly direction. I have counted 34, flying in groups following each other.
About 6 years ago I had a group of 5 inspecting a Barbet nest that I had put up in one of the trees on my property, but although they returned quite frequently, opening the hole to the nest, they never took to the nest.
