I visited Panti Forest recently, the Ornithology Sanctuary of the South of Peninsula Malaysia, famed for its Scarlet Rumped Trogon, Red Naped Trogon, and its Cinnamon Rumped Trogon.
Well, I found none of them despite spending the entire day there. What I did capture are the following birds and most importantly make two new birding buddies of the South. These friends that I made are blessed with great looking birds photograph that I wished I was the photographer, check them out (click links above).
Anyhow, I did managed some not too shabby shots ...
...and feeding on fruit.
The first photograph is not so crisp, however notice the beautiful yellow stripe on its wings. A shy bird and heard its calls many times but difficult to locate.
This Banded Broadbill did soothed my angst for not finding what I came to Panti Forest for.
...and it pays to have a local birding friends to show you the place around especially for a novice like myself.
