The Coppersmith Barbet, Crimson-breasted Barbet or Coppersmith  (Megalaima haemacephala), is a bird with crimson forehead and throat  which is best known for its metronomic call that has been likened to a  coppersmith striking metal with a hammer. It is a resident found in the  Indian Subcontinent and parts of Southeast Asia. Like other barbets,  they chisel out a hole inside a tree to build their nest. They are  mainly fruit eating but will take sometimes insects, especially winged  termites.
