White-cheeked Barbet

Psilopogon viridis

The White-cheeked Barbet is very similar to the Brown-headed Barbet, but this species is endemic to the forest areas of southern India and has distinctive supercilium and a broad white cheek stripe below the eye.

They lack the orange eye-ring of the other species which is mainly found in drier habitats although the ranges of the two species partly overlap.
