Brown Barbet (Caloramphus fuliginosus)

I am shooting under the drizzling rain to all these birds. I take a bit hard time covering my camera with plastic bag to avoid rain water get into it. The weather at the birding area, the whole day drizzling and birds sometimes come very near and have to come out from car to shoot these birds. The Brown Barbet is very well close to me.
Jambu Fruit Dove, (Ptilinopus jambu)
A female bird. I quess around these 3 months period is mating season for birds here in Borneo because I see many birds flying together in pairs and some are building their nest too also in pair. Like these Doves are always together . Chest-nut Scimitar-babbler are seen chasing one other are also in pair. What a romance they have now!!!
Jambu Fruit Dove, (Ptilinopus jambu)
A male bird
Scaly-breasted Bulbul (Pycnonotus squamatus)
I find this bird for 2nd.time and this one still at high up the tree branch but lower the earlier one I caught it. Hope next time will much lower.
Happy birding.
