Spot-crowned Barbet at Campana

Bill Porteous found a pair of Spot-crowned Barbets in a mixed flock in the pines round the old park buildings at Cerro Campana,foraging at middle levels. The birds were nominate maculicoronatus with yellow flank patches. The male, identified by his yellow chest band, was seen singing a rapid "poop-poop-poop-poop" song not mentioned in the literature.
