Velvet-Fronted Nuthatch

24th July 2010, Kemensah, Selangor.

You won’t believe how close they will come  near you. She was about 4 feet away when I  took the video.

  1. congrats on the sighting....have this same experience once in Panti forest, Johor and we left the place super happy & satisfied that day at the super cute and beautiful bird's performance.

  2. Great shots, as usual. What a beautiful bird!

  3. A great post Madi. You really nailed the bird in the wideo and the photos. I feel like I've seen it for real and can "tick" it, but I guess I'd better not.
