Pangkor Island 1

Pulau Pangkor – Sungai Pinang Kechil

I got the bus from the Cameron Islands really early, like 8am, and I did not get to Pulau Pangkor until late in the afternoon, 3pm. Such a massive journey. I found my guest house and settled in. This morning I was up a bit late, and went for a walk along the road that circles the island.

Common Hill Myna
Common Hill Myna (Gracula religiosa)

“Glossy black myna with bright yellow head wattles. Also note bright candlewax-orange bill and white wing patches that are most apparent in flight. A species of mature humid forest and forest edge, often seen in pairs or small flocks flying between or perched up in tall trees. Famed for its wide repertoire: gives a myriad of screams, squeaks, chirps, and whistles. Threatened by its popularity in the cage bird trade.” (ebird)

“The Asian brown flycatcher (Muscicapa dauurica) is a small passerine bird in the flycatcher family Muscicapidae. The word Muscicapa comes from the Latin musca, a fly and capere, to catch. The specific dauurica refers to Dauria, an area of south-eastern Siberia named after a local nomadic tribe.” (wiki)
