Juvenile Blue-Crowned Hanging-Parrots

9 August 2009, Kemensah, Selangor


A pair of juvenile Blue-Crowned Hanging-Parrots (Loriculus galgulus) local name: Burung Serindit were feasting on ripe Rambutans . The blue colour on the crown that give these birds their name have yet to develop._DSC0200

Working its way to the fleshy part of the fruit.





  1. Lovely birds; they look very alert and inquisitive with a gleam in their eyes that you captured nicely. And lucky to be feasting on rambutan fruits, one of my personal favorites.

  2. This Serindit is one of the wanted list by poacher. :(

  3. We saw a couple of poachers as Yen and I were on the way out of the jungle. They are part of a vicious circle, as long as there are buyers there will always be poachers.

  4. Wow...Serindit Melayu..

    Graet Shot!!

  5. very nice shots and a pair of them, it could not have been better.
