Chestnut Backed Scimitar Babbler

It has been quite awhile since I last visited the Old Pump House trail and these are the results after visited the same place twice in a roll. 

Spotted this Black Laughing Thrush while I was busy searching for the Rusty Naped Pitta that can be heard and not seen. A rather shy and noisy bird that made a brief stop that lasted less than 1 minute or 2. Not a crisp photo, sorry.      

 A gorgeous Chestnut Backed Scimitar Babbler.  A rather confiding fella.
