Classic work on Birds of Malay Peninsula

This is an amazing website and initiative by Raffles Museum that had digitised four volumes of "The Birds of Malay Peninsula" by Robinson & Chasen. Digitized pages were from Volumes 1 to 4 from 1927 to 1939 editions, although the original work was a five-volume book started in 1903 by H.C. Robinson, according to the National University of Singapore's website.

Have yet to see this Jambu Fruit Dove. Remembered one of the winning teams at the Fraser Hill Bird Race some years ago was aptly named Juicy Lucy and the Jambu Fruit Dove. 

This plate above on the trogons remind me of the Red-Naped Trogon.

Malay Bullfinch as described in Plate which I think has been renamed as Brown Bullfinch. Sighting has been recorded in Fraser Hill and one species of which is nowadays, difficult to find.
