Gunung Kinabalu Empat

Last morning at Kinabalu Park. I started late as I was not feeling too well. There were not many birds about or they were high up in the canopy and I could not get a bead on them. But eventually I came out with two new birds and a couple of all right photos.

Ashy Drongo
Ashy Drongo (Dicrurus leucophaeus)

This first one has what I might call is mid-grey colouring.

This one is very light in colour, almost white. I am not sure about why there is a large difference in shading between these two birds.

Ochraceous Bulbul
Ochraceous Bulbul (Alophoixus ochraceus )

High up in the trees in a gully. This is as good as I can get with this bird.

Bornean Whistler
Bornean Whistler (Pachycephala hypoxantha)

I was pulling my hair out trying to identify this one. Eventually I gave in and posted it to the South East Asia bird group. Thanks again, Khaleb for your kind help.
