Black-throated barbet

One of the smaller barbet species that resemble a sparrow, only found in Africa

Francesco Veronesi

Barbet, black and white, medium size. The black neck patch and the strongly striped face are notable. Found in thorn scrub and dry savanna.

Because of its broad distribution, this species does not meet the standards for Vulnerable under the range size criterion. The population trend looks constant; hence the species does not approach the Vulnerable levels based on the population trend. The population number has not been measured; however, it is unlikely to exceed the Vulnerable limits based on population size.

It can be spotted in Djibouti, Eritrea, Ethiopia, Kenya, Somalia, South Sudan, Tanzania, and Uganda.
