A few shots from the past year

As I head back to the UK next week for a while, here are some shots I haven't yet posted which I've taken at various places and times in the past year.



Here's an in-hand comparison of Blue and Malayan Whistling Thrush to give you an idea of the difference in size!

These other pics are either of breeding birds or birds that I felt would be jeopardized if the site were widely publicized.





Male Chestnut-naped Forktail



Female Chestnut-naped Forktail. All digiscoped.





Male Rhinoceros Hornbill - also digiscoped.











Male Rusty-naped Pitta - the rarely-photographed endemic 'deborah' race.

it resembled a thrush more than a pitta. much nearer to a orange-head thrush albeit with green back plumage! cool.
