Green Broadbill

The evening at Bumbun Tahan@ Taman Negara (hide) that looks out over a clear patch of land is not a bad place for birding. Spotted a pair of Green Broadbill hunting down insects in mid air; but it was quite dark at 7 pm to make any other shot.

This Green Broadbill has a very small beak if you care to compare him with his other cousins.

If you are lucky, you may get to see Sambar Deer and/or wild pigs at the clearing.

Hi,
Looks like you had a wonderful trip to Taman Negara. Beautiful shots of green broadbill and blue naped monarch. These are my target also. Must go there one day.

John,

Due to continuing habitat loss, the Green Broadbill is evaluated as Near Threatened on the IUCN Red List of Threatened Species.
