SPECIES INFO

The Zambian Barbet or Chaplin's Barbet (Lybius chaplini) is a bird species in the family Lybiidae, which was until recently united with the other barbets in the Capitonidae. It is endemic to Zambia.

Its natural habitats are moist savanna and arable land. It is threatened by habitat loss.

It was formerly classified as a Near Threatened species by the IUCN. But new research has shown it to be rarer than it was believed. Consequently, it is uplisted to Vulnerable status in 2008.
