Zambian Barbet, aka Chaplin’s Barbet

I thought I would start off with my latest  trip. We went Saturday to look for the somewhat rare Zambian Barbet and found success. Leslie Reynolds of Lapwing Safaris http://www.lapwingsafaris.com/  took me and two friends on a birding day trip about an hour north of Lusaka. Leslie is always entertaining and knowledgeable and, in my opinion, at the top of the heap as a bird guide. So here is a picture of Zambia’s only endemic bird, who finally graced us with his presence around 11:30 in the morning.
