Crested barbet

This crested barbet stopped by the watering hole while I was at the Mkombe bird hide at Zimanga Game Reserve.  For reasons I can’t quite put my finger on, it reminds me of the cartoon character Foghorn Leghorn from the Looney Tunes cartoons I watched when I was a kid.

Have great evening everyone!
