Wow Yummy Fruit

Sep 5 2010. For the past one week I had the opportunity photographing avian with foods in the bill (mouth). Here are some selection of the photos featuring some species of birds eating the fig fruit.

The short and stout bill of barbet is a useful
feature for fruit eating bird

Fruiting trees are like bird magnets!!!

When Barbets are not using their beaks to pick fruit, they use it like a woodpecker. That could explain the broken beak.
