Another lifer of the year 2013 and it missed me sadly when it showed at very quick glance and disappeared to the dark undergrowth and hoping it would be back perching like other fishers with no shy at all so that I could take as possible nice picture as I could. Then we kept waiting for its next appearance. After an hour or so it really showed up landing on a nice dead wood branch for rather good long time for me to digiscope. What an excited moment!!!. It was just enough time for me to focus on nicely before it flew away from us. It was just happy moment for us to have this seen and photograph this rare little bird.

Got this bird after 3rd. outing. Friends have been going to the place where this bird is and came back home with lovely nice pictures of it. I was just felt sad and disappointed to myself for failing not even a glance of it for first 2 outings. Then when I was having few photos of this bird, I was feeling relief and just happy. With it my collection goes to 347 species shoot in Borneo. And location where this bird I got is at Rafflesia Centre, Tambunan, Sabah Borneo, Malaysia...

April 28, 2012 two more lifers added to my bird list now counting to 341. Quite challenging to photograph these birds as one in dark while the other fast moving while catching flies in the air.

It seem I manage to get a new bird to add to my bird list everytime I go birding this year. My number to new birds hard to go up last year whereas this year few birds already added.
I can not tell this bird in the field other than babbler but the sound and the color of the bird is the only my guide helping me to identify at home through book. It hard to photograph it because it moved from one small branch to another of almost non-stop jumping. It is my 337th. collection of the year 2012.

Taken on the April 7, 2012 and another lifer of the year. Elusive birds and was lucky enough to find both male and female birds. A day earlier was just a glance of the male flying acorss us over the road. We got hold of them after appealing on the next day. It is a collection of 336th. birds shot in Borneo.

Recently birding with friends at Crocker Range Park, Tambunan. Upon reaching up there the weather was so windy and foggy. Luckily condition was better just for while and managed to shot this bird. It was so active and most of the time under and inside the bushes.
