Lineated Barbet

Psilopogon lineatus

The Lineated Barbet, known scientifically as Psilopogon lineatus, is a captivating bird that graces the Asian continent. Its plumage is a delightful array of colors, and it is distinguished by the striking lines that adorn its body, giving it its name.

Identification Tips

When attempting to identify the Lineated Barbet, look for its robust body and stout bill, which are characteristic of the species. The bird's head is adorned with lines that provide a hint to its identity.


This species is native to a variety of habitats, ranging from the lowland Terai region to the lush Brahmaputra basin, extending its reach to the diverse ecosystems of Southeast Asia.


The Lineated Barbet has a broad range, comfortably making its home across the Terai, the expansive Brahmaputra basin, and into the verdant realms of Southeast Asia.


The Lineated Barbet is a frugivore, which means it has a particular fondness for fruit. Observers will often find it indulging in the sweet bounty of nature.


A notable aspect of the Lineated Barbet's breeding behavior is its preference for nesting within the hollows of tree trunks, where it can raise its young in relative safety.

Conservation status

Bird enthusiasts will be pleased to know that the Lineated Barbet is currently classified as Least Concern on the IUCN Red List, indicating that, for now, the species is not at immediate risk of decline.

What Our Birders Say
Really great app
It’s easy to use and it’s fun to log the birds you notice on a walk or just in your garden. There’s a option to record the birds you see in a session which is really nice. Good excuse to stop for a while and just watch birds. I am also enjoying the information part where you can find out fact about birds from all over the world.
The best bird logging app
Birda is honestly the best bird logging app I have seen. I love all the features it has from being able to do a session and log all the birds you see in one sitting, to being able to connect with other birders from all over the globe!
Terrific App for Birders
Downloaded Birda around the time my interest in birding was sparked, and it has been a terrific app to help me (1) share my experience, (2) document my sightings, and (3) learn more about birds in general. That said, I also believe Birda is a fantastic app for birders of all experience levels. Great community!
Very Wholesome App
Joined this app with a new interest in watching birds to help me find out what I was spotting. The community is very active in helping identify birds which is great and everyone is very kind so it’s just a nice wholesome community. I would definitely recommend this for any bird spotter 😄

My favourite app
As a young birdwatcher who was always keen to be apart of a community but never seemed to find one, my problem was solved downloading this!!! Everyone is so friendly and just as excited to see birds as me 😁

Helped me to identify more birds
Love this app and has helped me to identify more birds. The challenges and badges are great for keeping the motivation going to get out and keep birding.

A great app
Enjoying it immensely and finding it useful too. Recording the different birds and counting them is showing me how the present climate is affecting them all. I've trebled the numbers by planting native hedging. A great app.
Great app for learning Birds
I’ve been using the app for a couple of months and love it....Someone said it’s like a real life Pokémon Go for birds. They’re not far off! It’s something that the family can do that gets you out and about. Well worth downloading no matter your age.

Clean and easy to use
Really enjoying this app, it's clean and easy to use. I love the ease of being able to add those one-off birds without starting a whole checklist. I also like the social aspect, like the parts of my Facebook I like, without the ads and junk, just birds. Can't wait to see it become more populated.
