Facts about coppersmith barbet

The Coppersmith Barbet is classified as Least Concern. Does not qualify for a more in danger category. Widespread and abundant taxa are included during this category.

The call of the Coppersmith Barbet, for example, is a dominant sound of Asian woodlands. In some tracts of woods the sound of those barbets.is present dawn to dusk. Nest holes, like this one, are excavated in rotten trees. The 2-5 eggs will be incubated for about two weeks; thereafter both parents care for the young. 
The Coppersmith Barbet is the resident of Rimba, home garden and parks. Seen practically most days of the year, its presence detected as soon as the calls are heard. Back in 2006, I saw them nesting on the Rain tree beside the access road. Then it did not attract me maintain a close watch on them. They preferred the canopy level and almost the tallest part of bare branches. I wouldn't be able to get good pictures at that height.
The Coppersmith Barbet is considered one of our more common birds in urban gardens but I'm sure not many people in Mumbai have spotted him. His ringing "tuk-tuk-tuk..." calls, on the other hand, must be familiar to everyone who's lucky enough to have a tree or garden in the vicinity! I wish I could have shared clearer photos with you but if you go over to Wiki, there are some excellent ones there.

Coppersmith Barbet which prefers a open habitat. Barbets Barbets are small, stocky-bodied birds with rather large heads which provides the looks of a stubby neck. The Asian and American species are predominantly green with red, blue and yellow markings, usually round the head.

coppersmith barbet  of India favors forest edge, plantations of figs, village and city trees, gardens, orchards, and mangroves—wherever there's fruit to eat and broken branches and stumps to nest in. It does not, however, live in cleared areas where rainforest has been felled, nor the wet rainforest of Sri Lanka, in which areas it is replaced by the crimson-throated barbet.
