Japanese Garden Bukit Tinggi Part Two - Avian Friends

Black-Browed Barbet at the fruiting tree in front of the small parking area at entrance to Botanical Gardens.

Black-Browed Barbet giving me a quizzical look:)

White-rumped Shama and Ochraceous Bulbul were the first to appear at the trail. Buff-breasted Babbler was hopping all over that morning inside the trail before the Mountain Peacock-Pheasants appeared. Saturday morning birds checklist has been shared earlier through eBird portal, and this list has been shared through my Facebook page and in my earlier posting on Japanese Gardens in Malaysian Highlands. I missed the Ferruginous Partridge having left the trail after seeing this pair of Peacock-Pheasants to explore the Botanical Gardens of Bukit Tinggi:( Pair of Blue-winged Leafbirds were spotted on my way towards the Gardens. The Leafbirds' blue and green plumage really stood out. Somehow, seeing this pair of leafbirds lessened my disappointment of missing out on the Partridge. Second (and many more) trips to Bukit Tinggi are definitely a must for birdwatchers!

  1. There is also the Malayan Peacock-Pheasant which is another ground-dweller species that I look forward to set a "meeting appointment":)
