Psilopogon lineatus is a medium-sized barbet measuring around 29 cm in length. It is commonly known as lineated barbet in English and Takur Kukup in Malay. It has a green body and the bill is pale straw coloured with light brown head and buff streak. Lineated barbet is distributed within the oriental region, which occurs in the Himalayas through Myanmar and the Malay Peninsular to Java and Bali. It is often found in coastal scrubs, orchards, coconut groves and tall secondary forests. Usually, lineated barbet feeds solitarily in fruiting trees and nests in a tree cavity.
As of today, two chicks have fledged successfully and there is one more chick still in the nest. The circle of life continues.
