Went to check out a nest of a Black & Red Broadbill (Cymbirhynchus macrorhynchos) local name : Burung Rakit. Hid myself behind some bushes hoping that the birds wouldn’t see me.
One bird came back and perched about 6 ft away from the nest. Carefully scrutinizing the area she then flew to a tree about 100 ft away.

She probably sensed danger, that the area was not safe and would not go anywhere that would reveal her nest. That was a clear signal for me to move away from there as not to stress the bird and her chicks (unsure if there were any).
