The Blue Pansy

In my friend favourite site. I manage to get this Blue Pansy. This is not a rare species but is another species which is lovely to look at. The Blue Pansy though only about 3 of them a round but is a subject of easy target.

Streaked Spiderhunter

Streaked Spiderhunter probably the commonest spiderhunter to see apart from the other spiderhunter lowland. This days I have find this spiderhunter in heavy competition with Spectacled Spiderhunter lately where i find the latter species in many hill station where is was less common about 15 years ago. Hopefully this species remain common in this hill station in years to come. Picture below are taken in one of the favourite tree for a group of Streaked Spiderhunter.

Crested Serpent Eagle

An adult Spilornis cheela malayesis was spotted under a canopy. This individual seen in late evening should be hunting for food based on the behaviour seen. This was a great sight. Its been a while I have never seen one perch in this location. Thus, this individual provide me a great view.

Silver-eared Mesia

Common mountain species. Also seen in all hill station where it reach the altitude. This species is easily heard and once heard usually is seen. This colourful species is always a target for many people. In photography, this species is one of the subject for our photography.

Crested Fireback

In some location this can be a pain in the ass to get. However in some area they are so use to people more or less like chicken. Still it never fail to get me to put on my binc to have another look on it. The Crested Fireback as name suggest have a perfect crest while his near cousin the crestless fireback is rather different looking.

Rusty-breasted Cuckoo

A rather common cuckoo to be heard in many place. Female and juvenile are very similar to Plaintive Cuckoo and male on slight different on throat. The Rusty-breasted Cuckoo got his name from the colour of the underpart particularly the breast area which also a key characteristic different from Plaintive Cuckoo which have grey breast.

Knowing the call provide all the difference and provide the ease of tracking down this cuckoo. Today one male show up. Stood near to us but with poor lighting, it does still provide some photographic opportunity for us.

Collared Scops Owl

Being the most easily seen scops owl in Malaysia this species is most probably make it into many people list. Nevertheless having their small size they can be very difficult to be seen at times. This species is also currently know as the Sunda Scops Owl after the split. Preferred habitat for this species is mostly on forest edge, park, and lots of time on bamboo. If you housing area have good wooded area, it is never surprising to find one calling near your house.

Do not get fool by the size as well. Though maybe small they have great voice which can be hear hundred of meter away. Once one individual was track down 400 meter away from the point it was heard calling. Our team rush into action and found a pair calling high up in the tree.

Another photograph today probably after nesting was taking their usual rest in their usual spot.
