Cat & Mouse: Black-Throated Babbler

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.





  1. Very rare finding.
    Worth a long wait, congratulation!

  2. Good catch congrats............
