Quarantine Island

Lockdown from the Backyard

These are some of the photos from the last few days here at Pangkor Island, Malaysia. I have seen most of these birds every day, it is almost like groundhog day. The only exception today was that I saw a pair of Collared Kingfishers.

Common Myna
Common Myna (Acridotheres tristis)

A very common bird and considered a pest in a lot of places.

White-bellied Sea-eagle
White-bellied Sea-eagle (Haliaeetus leucogaster)

Just after catching a fish. I have been trying to get a shot of a sea eagle catching a fish. Still not quite there yet. I can do better.

Collared Kingfisher
Collared Kingfisher ( Todiramphus chloris)

This is the first time I have seen these around here.

Pacific Swallow
Pacific Swallow (Hirundo tahitica)
