My first day out on my trip to Taiwan, I went to a local park in
Kaohsiung and spotted this bird. It was able to take a few shots
over the next couple of hours as I spotted it four times. These
were shot with the 20D and 100-400 LIS.

1 First spotted the Barbet near an abandon woodpecker hole.

2 Better angle of the hole

3 Latter in a tree about 1/2 mile away

4 It seemed to like staying in the shade, and out of view

5 I sure wish I had the 500 f4L in this light

6 As I was leaving the park, I saw it again, this time cleaning up the nest
