Zambian Barbet


Zambian Barbet (Lybius chaplini); minted on the new one kwacha coin, the Zambian Barbet is the only truly endemic bird species in Zambia. Zambian Barbets frequent scattered large fruiting fig trees, mostly Ficus sycomorus, in extensive open areas, edges of cultivated fields, gardens, pastures, streamside woods in open savanna and miombo woodlands.
