Ashy Minivets

22nd  November 2009, Kemensah, Selangor

Ashy Minivets (Pericrocotus divaricatus) have arrived in great numbers in Kemensah now.  I’ve seen many females but the male birds are quite scarce. Managed to get one shot of the male and he was the only male in a flock of 4 birds.

The male is whiter and has black lores, crown and nape.





  1. Love that feeding shot, if not for the blocked branches.
    "Selamat Hari Raya Aidil-Adha". Tak balik Kelate ko?
