Crested Barbet

The crested barbet is a "wow" bird, as in "who put that together?" It has a speckled yellow and red face, a black crest, a yellow belly with red speckles, black wings with white specks, and a black band on its neck. 
They are found in Sub-Saharan Africa from Angola, Democratic Republic of Congo and Uganda down. 
We only saw this one, in Hwange NP in Zimbabwe. I would love to see more, and some of its cousins. Truly spectacular.
