Pitta and Flycatcher

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.

Happy birding...

Horsfield's Babbler

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.

Happy birding.

Whitehead's broadbill.

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.
 Male bird.
 Female bird.
Happy birding.

Sunda Bush Warbler

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.


Happy birding.
