Chestnut-Backed Schimitar Babbler

June 2011, Kenyir

 

While trying to get some shots of the Scarlet-Rumped Trogon that I spotted earlier, a pair of this rarely seen bird showed up close to where I was standing. Even though they are much larger than most other Babblers, they seem to share the same behavior  and habitat with the other Babblers found in the same area.

 

I believe it is among the largest bird of the Babblers family…

Their constant movement provide a real challenge to Photographers who wish to photograph them.

I managed to capture a few shots before they disappeared into the forest..
