Taman Tasik Taiping

This morning I went for a walk around Lake Park. I did not expect much but it turned out quite good. My photos turned out quite good, so I am happy about that.

Rhinoceros Hornbill
Rhinoceros Hornbill ( Buceros rhinoceros )

Oriental Pied Hornbill
Oriental Pied Hornbill (Anthracoceros albirostris )

Female and male.

Green Iora
Common Iora (Aegithina tiphia)

Not a Green Iora (Aegithina viridissima). I need to have a good look at the differences. Back to square one. Thanks to Tim Forrester for the correction. “I believe this is a common iora, because of the very white wing coverts. Female green ioras have a much more yellow wing coverts.
Also I don’t think the tail color is a reliable way to tell them apart. Males of both Common and Green have black tails, while females of both have a more yellowish/greenish mixed with black tail.”

Grey Heron
Grey Heron (Ardea cinerea)

Long-tailed Parakeet
Long-tailed Parakeet (Psittacula longicauda)

Oriental Magpie-robin
Oriental Magpie-robin (Copsychus saularis)

I think this is a female.
