Day trip with Hornbills and Trogons

It has been some birding with great views of 5 hornbills, 5 broadbills, 2 trogons, and so much more. Although we dipped on Garnet Pitta and Banded Pitta, the birding was great! an unexpectable rufous-backed kingfisher suddenly passed by while we were looking at the crimson-breasted flowerpecker. a red-bearded bee-eater was very cooperative in the morning by showing itself in an open horizontal branch a few feet away. all this in a span of 12 hours birding in the lowland and highland in peninsular malaysia.

Hornbills
1. Black Hornbill (1 pair)
2. Oriental Pied Hornbill (1 pair)

An excellent day, Weng Chun, I'm especially impressed with the Green broadbill - which remains missing from my list.

there were several green broadbill calling, but after seeing the first one right in the open, we did not bother to look for the others.

*do we have the same bird as avatar???*

I've heard a few calling, but none ever obliged to show.

Yes we do.
