Mandarin Duck. Male species looking resplendent below.
Asian Fairy Bluebird. Male species striking blue colours from the back.

Red and Yellow Barbet. Species from African region. It behaved unlike any other barbet species I have seen in Malaysia. The final pic at the bottom of this blog shows it hopping around the ground and grass late evening. I have never seen an endemic barbet species in Malaysia, hopping around on ground before as field guides to Birds in Malaysia & Southeast Asia generally describe the barbet species as a "tree-top" bird.

The ground-hopping Red and Yellow Barbet! Wikipedia has some interesting details and facts about this African species at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Red-and-yellow_Barbet


  1. These are captive birds. Just inside a bigger man-made cage that is called an aviary. Much better to see birds in the wild, in places like Taman Negara, Fraser Hill, wetlands, coastal beaches, etc.

  2. Victoria Crowned Pigeon mates for life according to this Audubon article at https://www.audubon.org/news/50-shades-grey-bird-edition
