Locally common endemic bird of forests and well wooded gardens from wet
lowlands to mid hills. Also occurs but scarce in eastern
foothills and higher hills. Yellow-fronted Barbet feeds mainly on fruits. The
breeding season is from February to May and again from August to September
though occasional nests sometimes found at other months of the year. It lays two or three white eggs in a hole of a soft-wooded dead stem or branch of a tree
pecked out by birds themselves.
