It is very much easier to photograph birds in City Parks compared to those in the forest, probably because these birds are used to seeing humans in their habitat. I had this experience recently during my morning walk at the Kelana Jaya Park. I noticed some bird activities at a section of the park. As I got closer, I saw this pair of Common Flameback foraging quite low near the ponds’ edge. I quickly ran to the car and grabbed the gear to get a couple of shots of this amazing bird. Here are the images that I managed to capture during my ‘unplanned’ birding trip.
This female Flameback allowed me to capture a couple of shots before she moved to a much higher spot in the tree.
Unfortunately, the male was not too accommodating, I had a tough time trying to get good shots of him.
