Black-browed Barbet

I've been hearing this mysterious bird call coming from the forest behind me and I've been totally unable to figure out what bird it is. After some research, though, and listening to more than a few sound clips, I believe the bird in question is the Black-browed Barbit, which I find especially exciting because I've always been a fan of the Painted Bunting, which looks quite similar (though they're unrelated). I haven't seen either bird myself, but just knowing who is making that call brings a smile to my face.
