Green Broadbills: At last!

9th July 2011, Ulu Perdik, Selangor

 

You mean you haven’t got your Green Broadbills yet!  It’s the usual reaction that I get from other bird photographers/ birders when I tell them that I’ve yet to photograph this Broadbill.

Finally I can  close the book on  Broadbills after photographing my lastl species taht can be seen here  in Malaysia.

The day started with this beautiful female

The male has  black ear coverts , has more feathers on the upper mandilble

It seems that the female is more approachable and tend to stay longer on one perch than the male. The same was observed when we saw the female again on 30/07/11. The male came and went in  a matter of a few seconds.

Most probably the same female shot on 30/07/11
