23rd May 2010, Bentong, Pahang.
A family gathering at my brother-in-law’s orchard was a good opportunity to look for birds. Next to the orchard was still thick jungle.
I had to wait for 2 hours for this beauty as she called from the thick undergrowth, never coming out in the open. Finally she gave me two 5-second windows for these shots.
An adult Black-Throated Babbler (Stachyris nigricollis) . Both male and female look similar. Status: Near Threatened. A lifer
There was a pair and I think these are photos of two different birds.
