The Black-collared Barbet (Rooikophoutkapper, Afrikaans name) occurs throughout the Kruger National Park, mostly in wooded areas. Their nests are usually excavated into tree stumps.
Their main food is fruit and particularly figs.
I have a baby rooikop houtkapper that I found almost dead in our garden…i would like some advice on how I can make him strong and healthy again…I’ve been feeding him mashed fruits and bananna purity . He is injured…left wing and left claw is broken…
Please help with any advice .
