Blue-throated Barbet

The Blue-throated Barbet(蓝喉拟啄木鸟/Megalaima asiatica) is an Asian barbet having bright green, blue & red plumage, seen across the Indian subcontinent and Southeast Asia. Barbets and toucans are a group of near passerine birds with a world-wide tropical distribution. The barbets get their name from the bristles which fringe their heavy bills; this species eats fruits and insects. They frequent evergreen  forests, deciduous forests, gardens, orchards, teak forests and cities with fruiting trees.
