The Brown-throated Barbets (Megalaima corvina) – also known as Javan Barbets or Javan Brown-throated Barbets – are endemic to the Indonesian island of Java (hence this species’ common name); where they live in subtropical or tropical moist lowland forests and moist montanes in the western part of the island.
Diet / Feeding
Brown-throated Barbets primarily feed on fruits, but will also eat a wide range of insects, such as ants, cicadas, dragonflies, crickets, locusts, beetles, moths and mantids.

They nest in tree holes and hens usually lay 2 to 4 eggs, which are incubated for 13 to 15 days.
