Hakem’s Girl : ‘Bakal Menantu’

9th October 2010, Kemensah, Selangor

I took Ari & Wilma’s suggestion to find a suitable mate for Hakem but it looked like Hakem had found  himself a  pretty, young bird without my help. Just look  at those facial stripes, gorgeous!

She must be new to the area because I haven’t seen any juvenile females before this. Been trying to obtain some  info on the age of these birds when they reach sexual maturity but unfortunately there’s none.


Hakem was on a different branch a few yards away from his ‘girl’.


Translation: Bakal menantu- ‘future daughter in-law’


  1. I was just about to look up the dictionary until i read your last line! :)
