It’s the green, green world of Green Broadbill

July 2011, Kenyir, Gerik & Ulu Langat


Yes, green seem to very fashionable today….everyone talks about green environment, green energy,green car, green everything….so I’d like to share this green little bird that has been eluding me for quite sometime….

Finally, after almost a year of searching, I managed to capture this green beauty in it’s natural habitat, doing what it was meant to do…

I got smarter after the first encounter and managed to capture their images at 3 different locations during the month of July 2011.


Their almost perfect camouflage renders them almost invisible especially when sitting quietly on their perch…which happens to be their natural behavior…

The plumage on the male bird has some kind shine that looks glossy under certain lighting condition.
