From Kenn's Studio: Red-headed Barbet

From Kenn's Studio: Red-headed Barbet / Torito Cabecirrojo (Eubucco bourcierii), female - watercolor on Arches paper.

Like many birds,
Red-headed Barbet is named for the colors of the male, but I think the female's color pattern is just as beautiful. These small, chunky birds live in mountain forest of Costa Rica, Panama, Venezuela, Colombia, and Ecuador, plus a small area of northern Peru. I've seen them several places, most recently last year in foothills near Cali, Colombia.
