NOTES: (Gen. Habitat: Brachystegia/miombo woodlands.) Nest of barbet has young of minor.
The young I. minor being fed b y the group of S. anchietae. The identification was confirmed when days later we watched it fledge. We could see the juv at the hole (clearly). There were many chases, i.e. the barbet chasing off the attendant honeyguides. Background likely also the rattle call of D. fuscescens.
The nestling recorded in this (and double copied with Stactolaema anchietae LNS 51501) continued calling each day we were at the nest until it fledged. These cuts are LNS ##51504, 5 (under S. anchietae) for further material on this particular individual I. minor juv.
