I don’t know the name of this little guy. Cindy from Photos from the Loonybin enjoys researching the creatures I don’t know. So today I thought I would post this photo and challenge all of you, “Do you know what type of bird this is?” Here are the clues, I snapped this photo in Botswana outside the Chobe National Park. Good luck! And happy Friday the 13th!

I thought you had me this time buddy, but after going through about 30 pages of Botswana bird pictures (hopefully I don’t get fired LOL), I think I’ve got it!! It’s a Crested Barbet! I couldn’t see all of his colours because of the side view, but I’m sure that’s what it is. Yayyyyy for Detective Cindy!! 🙂
I need to come up with a way to organize my photos so all of your hard work doesn’t go to waste 🙂 Thanks!
acdsee – trust me, it’s the way to go. You can have categories and then sub-categories and so on. If you want to see a picture that has both a lion and a giraffe in it, you simply put a mark beside lions and one beside giraffes and the program will sort through all your thousands of photos and bring up only the photos that have both lions and giraffes in them. Also, I don’t know if this is obvious to everyone or not, but have you ever tried right clicking on a photo, going to properties and then labeling it under “details” I think it is. My memory is so bad that I have to do that so I don’t forget where I took a picture. 🙂
I put my photos into folders on my computer. I still have acdsee on my things to do list. I should take a month and label my all of my photos. Who knows how much I’ll remember in 5 years. Do you feel like a project? Just kidding…that would be so mean.
What a pretty and unique bird. I have never seen onbe like him before.
Thank you TBM
Thanks Novroz. I thought he was pretty cool looking.
He’s sure a cute fellow.
I agree Carol!
I agree it could be a Crested Bardet – woodpecker as I would call it in my plain way. (afrikaans – houtkapper)
Cool! I’ll have to make note of the plain way and afrikaans.
Cute, but I don’t know what kind it is.
He has character.
He has a very alert expression in those beady eyes.
He wanted my lunch!
My favourite feathered visitor to the garden – the Crested Barbet.
I’m jealous that you see him more than I do. I liked his personality.
Incredible little bird, Love his colors!
He is fun.
Oh dear, how I wish I could rise up to the challenge – unfortunately my understanding of birds is not that extensive – I am fairly limited to ‘if it flies, it must be a bird’ 🙂 – now as to what kind, that I’d have to study and know more about. 🙂
My skills are on par with yours. I love them, but I can never name them.
Yip, Crested Barbet it is. Cutie… 🙂
He was cute and feisty…he did everything he could do to steal my lunch.
I think he would agree with you Hook!
