Scarlet-Rumped Trogons

3rd July 2011, Ulu Perdik, Selangor

 

I went to Ulu Perdik after hearing that the Green Broadbills were around hoping to close  the chapter on my Malaysian broadbills. Unfortunately for me the Broadbills decided to have an off day.

These Trogons were a pleasant consolation for what would have been a rather  unfruitful outing. She looks like she has just been bathing at a paint factory……..simply an amazing myriad of colours on one bird.

He came down  low enough for me to get some detailed shots.
