Taman Tasik – Taiping – Perak

What can I say? Groundhog Day. Get up, have breakfast, walk around lake. There is always something interesting to see.

Crested Serpent-Eagle
Crested Serpent-Eagle ( Spilornis cheela )

This guy was having his breakfast on the bank of a creek. I did not go closer as I did not want him to fly away and lose his meal.

Pink-necked Green-pigeon  - male
Pink-necked Green-pigeon ( Treron vernans ) – male

Black-thighed Falconet
Black-thighed Falconet (Microhierax fringillarius)

They always seem to be very high up in the top of dead trees.

Oriental Pied Hornbill
Oriental Pied Hornbill(Anthracoceros albirostris )

Doing some weird fanning with its tail.

Milky Stork
Milky Stork (Mycteria cinerea )

Big Close Up. I counted 17 of them in a pond.

Dusky Leaf Monkey
Dusky Leaf Monkey (Trachypithecus obscurus)

Also known as Spectacled Langur, or Spectacled Leaf Monkey.

Pigtail Macaque  - female
Pigtail Macaque (Macaca nemestrina) – female

This troupe of Pigtail Macaques were crossing the water to get to a huge coffee tree. They looked like they were eating what I thought were coffee beans.
