The daylight was very good but harsh. There was plenty of birds call and the familiar bellowing call of the Malayan Rail-Babbler was refreshing in the early hour. I really have not get any good pictures of it since my early encounter last year.
The Hairy-backed Bulbul with its whitish-yellow eye patch was the first bird that came out in the open. Cannot see the hair on the back though. Possibly a immature one with its parent.
YES! The star bird is out looking for a mate from its expression and moves. It is quite active and adventurous coming out in the open every hour or so. At times it will walk along the trunk from left to right and right to left. My Fuji XT-2 somewhat was not in its usual self and focus hunt in the dim condition. Shooting at ISO 3200 in speed below 1/30s
Above the Yellow-breasted Bulbul comes in a pair. The Black-throated Babbler below is a new comer to the port whilst the Black-capped are the common ones.The rarity would be the White-necked Babbler which I have seen at the right side of the road between Deerland entrance and road-turning. You never know what will pop out like the Banded Kingfisher at the this hunt.
Short-tailed was late to join the party and the Sharma was collecting the mealworm in beakful to feed its hatchling somewhere behind.
