Bukit Tinggi, 15th March 2011
While waiting for the Blue and White Flycatcher to show up, I noticed bird activities on some trees near the left side slope of the nursery. Upon locking the focus, the bird turned out to be a handsome Large Woodshrike.
Seemed that this Large Woodshrike has been picking out what looked like a cockroach from cracks in the bark of a nearby tree – what an efficient hunter he is!
He smashed the cockroach on the branch a couple of times before swallowing it.
About 10m to the right of the tree where I saw the Large Woodshrike, I saw this Green-Billed Malkoha enjoying the sunshine.
Getting a clean shot of this bird is always a challenge.
Just as I was about to leave for home, this Red-Billed Malkoha showed up briefly on a tree not far from where the Green-Billed Malkoha was earlier. Of course my very poor shots did not do justice to this beautiful bird. Hopefully I’ll meet this beauty again.
