    Cyornis unicolor (male & female) ????

    I caught a shot of this pair while birding in the highlands in Malaysia 2 weeks ago. Ignore my assumed identification of the bird in each photo, as it is still not concluded as to their ID (hence the post). Altitude, approx. 1,500m Location: Genting Highlands in Peninsular Malaysia (just...

    Warblers & Woodpeckers

    Just posted 2 warblers, which should be found on my personal gallery: Yellow-bellied Warbler Mountain Leaf Warber I just managed to sneak this shot of a Bay Woodpecker, which was miles away, hence the poor quality, plus, he was in the clouds passing through the highlands. I don't want the shot...

    Plain Sunbird

    At first, thought it was a female sunbird, but kept seeing this species in various places throughout the forest with no colourful 'other-half' in sight. Fairly confident it's the Plain Sunbird. Have other photos should you wish to see other angles (although not great quality :C )

    Chestnut-bellied Malkoha

    The image in my gallery was originally thought to be Black-bellied Malkoha, but after much deliberation and comparing to other images, I think its the chestnut-bellied Malkoha. No images in DB so far. Regards John

    Sunbird, Olive-Backed (male eclipse)??, Malaysia, Kuala Selangor

    This little guy was about the size of a Golden-bellied Gerygone, so I would say about 9-10cm. His bill says "sunbird", and everything about it looks like an Olive-Backed Sunbird, but in Craig Robson's fieldguide, there's also a (Male ecplise). I don't actually know if there's a size difference...

    Plain Prinia?? Klang, West Coast Peninsula Malaysia, coastal grasslands

    Apologies for the not so good shots here. The missus and I have narrowed this fellow down to what we believe is a Plain Prinia. We were out and about yesterday, and heard a clicking noise. Looked up and around to see this little guy climbing up to the sky, then falling rapidly back to the...

    Greetings from Malaysia!!

    Hi all! just a quick "hello" from Malaysia. I'm slowly building a portfolio of mediocre photos, and with more practice, learning and some more suitable equipment (coming soon), to start a portfolio of respectable quality bird photographs that I hope I can share here. Thanks!! John
