Blue-Eared Barbet

19th June 2010, Kemensah, Selangor.

The previous encounter with this species was back in August 2009, and it was a juvenile bird. After   almost ten months of hoping the opportunity  came when this adult female Blue-Eared Barbet alighted onto a branch of this fruiting tree where I was taking a breather after  a steep uphill  climb.  They  are canopy birds and tend to forage very  high up the trees making them impossible to shoot with my setup._DSC0119






  1. Nice capture Madi, I've been trying to get this one for quite sometime and so far only got a few record shots, congrats!

  2. That is a beautiful, colorful little bird, Madi! Glad you caught her.


  3. Beautiful clean shot. Its very rare opptunity to see this bird peched low like this.
