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...
Just posted 2 warblers, which should be found on my personal gallery:
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...
Just completed checking my birds against the database, and found a few more to add:
Laced Woodpecker (male), although I have a shot of the female too if you're interested?
Buff-rumped Woodpecker (pic is a bit grainy, but identifiable)
PS; just updated the DB...
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 )
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.
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...
I have scoured the web for hours trying to ID just these 2 fellas.
The beetle, looks extremely similar to Titanus giganteus from South America, only it was seen in the jungle (Taman Negara) in Peninsula Malaysia.
That's my shoe (UK Size 10) as size reference.
I've looked through...
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...
I saw this guy perched on a fence post on a boardwalk through a mangrove forest.
The wife and I narrowed it down to the following:
Blue Throated Flycatcher
Rufous Breasted Bush Robin
Mangrove Blue Flycatcher
Malaysian Blue Flycatcher,
I reckon it's the Robin, but the wife says Blue-throated...
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.
