The shy blue-throated barbet (Psilopogon asiaticus) is bright green with a blue throat. Birds at the northern and western parts of its range have a black brow, while southern birds don’t. Native to the foothills of the Himalayas and Southeast Asia, it is a resident breeder from Nepal through northeast India to Southeast Asia. Barbets get their name from the tufts of bristles which fringe their heavy bills.
