The red-fronted barbet (Tricholaema diademata) is a species of bird in the Lybiidae family. It is found in Ethiopia, Kenya, South Sudan, Tanzania, and Uganda. Red-fronted barbet is a solitary arboreal species found in open bush, dry woodland, acacia scrub and riparian forests throughout northeastern Africa. These birds consume a wide variety of fruits and insects (including termites and ants) as well as small vertebrates and seeds. This uncommon bird has a plump body shape, a large head and heavy bill with a broad yellow "eyebrow" stripe.
