Temoyong Creek Road

Once again, me and Thomas went off to the road to Temoyong Creek. There are a few dead trees on the ridge line and they seem to attract quite a few birds. This morning gave us quite a few surprises.

Rufous-bellied Swallow
Rufous-bellied Swallow (Cecropis badia)

Wreathed Hornbill  - female
Wreathed Hornbill (Rhyticeros undulatus)

I think this one is a female but it has the wrong colour pouch under the throat. (Edit: It is an immature female, thanks Chai.)

Greater Racket-tailed Drongo

Pink-necked Green-Pigeon - female
Pink-necked Green-Pigeon (Treron vernans) – female

The Pink-necked Green-Pigeon can be identified by its pale green bill, pale green wing, Black flight feathers, Chestnut undertail coverts and Black Subterminal tail band.

I just like the background on this photo.
