My work usually takes me to the less developed part of the country with very poor internet connection. This situation really restricted my access to the internet. Anyway, here is the final segment of my ‘Birds of Fraser Hill’ series.
Fire Tufted Barbet – with it’s relatively large size, attractive color, a prominent tuft of reddish spines over base of bill and an unusual cicada-like buzzing voice, has got to be one of the ‘Star’ attraction at Fraser Hill.

It’s preference for the top storey of the forest makes photographing them a tough challenge!
The foggy condition results in poor IQ
A very common bird where ever the bottle brush flower blooms – Male Orange-Bellied Leafbird
And the less colorful female
Another common visitor to the ‘bottle brush tree’ is this Black-Throated Sunbird.
