After a month's siesta pull up my socks to bird in the ole hunt in Bukit Nuang. Did not expect much during the very dry & hot weather there. First bird to see at the first section of the trail is a single Spectacled Spiderhunter feeding on nectar of a flowering tree. Later a fledgling flew to the same tree and the adult bird was seen feeding it.
A fruiting ficus tree draws plenty of bulbuls like black-headed, crested and red-eyes. A pair Asian Fairy Bluebird was also sighted. No good pictures here as the tree was very dense.
Found a pair of Dollarbird eying a nesting hole 10 m from the ground.
The handsome glowing OM robin which was very confiding whilst the resident Chestnut-breasted Malkoha was a bit shy today.
This migrant yellow-rumped flycatcher is common to be seen here since few months past. They tend to keep to the cooler part of undergrowth and stream path.
A pair of Chestnut-naped Forktail flew in while I was luring the flycatcher at the stream. On the right a possible Philentoma
Look at the hairy-back!
