The bearded barbet (Lybius dubius) has black feathery whiskers resembling a beard around its bill. It is a common resident breeder in tropical west Africa. It is an arboreal species of gardens and wooded country which eats fruit, although the young are fed on insects. Whenever several bearded barbets get together, they engage in spirited displays, swinging their tails, showing their white flank patches, and bowing up and down.
