It was another thrilling encounter this morning when I stumbled upon the Chestnut-breasted Malkoha ( Phaenicophaeus curvirostris) I could sense its presence about 20 meters away by its peculiar low call when I was approaching Botanic Island One. After a while of looking its whereabout and keeping still beneath the tall trees and dense canopy, my eyes were suddenly attracted to a dark moving figure among the leaves and branches. My patience was rewarded when the Malkoha came out more in the open. Here are a few shots on this morning encounter.
Early April the Long-tailed Nightjar was seen frequenting the open ground near the Cempedak Hill and I was hoping that the adult bird will produce an offspring. Today, after a lapse of a few weeks I decided to catch up with the bird. To my greatest surprise I saw a young Nightjar chick at the spot where the adult frequented before. I did not have the chance to see the eggs since I was away in Kuching. Nevertheless, the presence of the juvenile Nightjar is one up for the park as a wildlife sanctuary.
