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  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.
