Grey Chinned Minivet

I photographed this couple at the Old Pump House Road, Goh Tong Jaya, Genting.
Oddly enough, that the male wears a bright orange plumage and greenish-yellow plumage for the female.

How do you know if they they the same species?

Take a closer look at the back/wings of the birds, you will notice that the pattern of its marks and its location are the same except for its colour.

Observe her chin, its greyish...hence Grey-Chinned Minivet.

I have added a better/clearer picture of her taken in late March 09 (Photograph 1 was taken in early March 09).

Photograph 2 taken from the same location.
