Lifers at the Old Pump House Road, Gohtong Jaya, 31 May 2009


Lifer 1: Fire-Tufted Barbet ( Psilopogon pyrolophus)

I’ve heard so much about the Old Pump house Road as a birding destination so on Sunday I went with my son to tread the 6km journey. When the bird wave came at about 9.30am, the birds were all around us that it wasn’t easy to concentrate on the one in your viewfinder!
These photographs are my lifers.
Others seen and photographed:
-Grey-Chinned Minivets ( male and female)
-Large Woodshrike
-Bar-Winged Flycatcher-Shrike
-Black-Browed Barbet
-Spectacled Laughingthrush

Seen and heard but not photographed:
-Hornbill (unsure which species)

Lifer 3: Collared Babbler (Gampsorhynchus saturatior)
Lifer 4: Orange-Bellied Leafbird (Chloropsis hardwickii)
After all that, I'm a much fitter person!
