Acacia Pied Barbert.


Like most other barbets, the Acacia Pied Barbet drills holes into dead wood in order to create cavity nests, similar in manner to a woodpecker. It lays two to four eggs from August to April, and both sexes incubate the eggs.
The Acacia Pied Barbet has been observed taking fruit from various trees and shrubs, such as Ficus, Rhus and Phoenix reclinata, as well as Aloe nectar and insects.
