Hi everyone, we had two of these birds in our house when we got home from work. I'm very interested to find out what type of bird this is, I've never seen one like this.

Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

Hi Shaun,

That's a Crested Barbet (presuming you're in South Africa).

Cheers,
Gordon

It's a beautiful bird,when I see those red lines on it's chest,it almost looks like someone has scratched it.

Thanks Gordon.

An interesting thing happened when I released them, I had to catch them one by one, and when I released the first one, it flew in a very specific direction. I went back into the house to catch the second one, and when I released that one, it flew in the exact same direction, even though I released it from a different position. Just thought that was interesting. lol.

But thanks for the help though. :)
