I saw this bird last week but had limited time to sit and wait for her. This week Mission Blackcap is on .
We knew that she’s very wary of people and will fly off at the slightest movement or noise. We waited for her near a dead tree where we last saw her . She didn’t come to that tree, instead she landed on a rock in the middle of a pond, quite some distance away from our position. Afraid that we might lose her if we moved in closer , we took the shots .
True enough , she disappeared after I momentarily popped my head up from behind the bushes.
A Lifer: Black-Capped Kingfisher (Halcyon pileata) local name: Pekaka Kopiah Hitam. She’s a migratory species to Malaysia.
Mission Blackcap II will be underway soon to improve on these photos.
