Robin of Brinchang Cameron Highlands

White-tailed Robin. Male as seen above finally displayed its white tail before Ang, Raj and myself on Saturday, 16th April 2016, evening as we exited the road from Brinchang Mountain as we headed home from Cameron Highlands. The Robin of Brinchang, Cameron Highlands shied away from our cameras that Friday afternoon when we first spotted it as Ang drove up the road towards the Mossy Forest. The Male Robin perched on the barrier for quite awhile, all glossy black and flew off when the car behind us honked us that Friday. Ang parked at the side of road and we waited for it to return but it didn't. We saw it a few times that Friday at the side of the road but cars frequented that road and the honks scared these robins away. This male White-tailed flew across Ang's Isuzu to the embankment from the road barrier and returned to perch on the road barrier. We were lucky that Saturday evening since NO cars were behind nor in front of us. This robin gave us a really memorable farewell as it displayed both whites on its tail before flying down into the thick undergrowth. Was laughing so hard in Ang's car together with Raj since this White-tailed was displaying itself so prominently that evening and FINALLY fanned its tail for us after all the frustrating moments that we encountered the day before and earlier that day. Add to that the one single bar of battery left for my Panasonic Lumix - Lady Luck (of Birdwatching) was smiling at us that day as I had just enough battery power left in my camera to take pictures of White-tailed Robin as below.  More to come from this 2 days 1 night outing to Cameron Highlands.

  1. Ang's Facebook has a beautiful picture of the Female White-Tailed Robin. The Oriental Magpie Robin was also present at the Tea Estate of Brinchang, Cameron Highlands.
