Revealed: Banded Broadbill

27th December 2009,  Kemensah, Selangor

I could hear their distinctive call every time I went into Kemensah. They were definitely there but so far they had refuse to show themselves.
It all changed today when  two Banded Broadbills (Eurylaimus javanicus) flew in and landed quite close to where I was.  This is my long awaited Lifer. It’s not clear from these photos whether it’s a male or female. 










  1. What the great way to stat a new year with this beautiful lifer. Congratulation!.

  2. You got so many lifer at Kemensah. I've been there a few times but so far not so lucky. Hopefully 2010 will bring luck for me there, especially the BEKF.

  3. Fabulous bird. Good job and congratulations on the lifer!
