Cameron Highlands Birding 2

Filed under: Birds — Tags: — admin @ 5:10 am

Parit and Robinson Falls. 120515.

I tried the same route as yesterday afternoon this morning. First the garden, then up along the track to Parit Falls. There was not much in the garden but there were a few birds in the forest near the Parit Falls.

Chestnut Crowned Laughingthrush
Chestnut Crowned Laughingthrush (Garrulax erythrocephalus)

This one took a bit of working out but I googled birds and Cameron Highlands and found the answer.

Silver-eared Mesia
Silver-eared Mesia (Mesia argentauris)

There were a flock of about a dozen of these, flitting from bush to bush.

NFI
Little Brown Job Streaked Wren-babbler (Napothera brevicaudata)

I am not even going to attempt to ID this one. I will leave it till tomorrow. Update: It is a Streaked Wren-babbler (Napothera brevicaudata), thanks to Mr Tou for the identification.

butterfly
Tailed Judy (Abisara neophron)

This butterfly looks back to front because he has what looks like an eye at his rear end. Update: Tailed Judy (Abisara neophron) butterfly, ID by Ma’ruf – thank you. They are found through Myanmar, Thailand, Laos, Vietnam, S.China and Malay Peninsula.

Blue Whistling-Thrush
Blue Whistling-Thrush (Myophonus caeruleus)

I thought this was a Chinese Blackbird at first glance but the slight hook in the beak had me suspicious. Once again Google came to the rescue and I found some people who had done banding on these birds.
