Cameron Highlands – Tanah Rata Day Two

This morning I was up at 7am and had my coffee before setting off to the start of Trail 4 again. This morning there were so many birds. I got a bit lost in knowing where to shoot sometimes. Most of the time, the light was pretty crap, so I had difficulty getting decent photos. But I persisted.

Streaked Spiderhunter
Streaked Spiderhunter (Arachnothera magna)

Black-and-crimson Oriole
Black-and-crimson Oriole (Oriolus cruentus)

“The Black-and-crimson Oriole (Oriolus cruentus) is a species of bird in the family Oriolidae. It is found in Indonesia and Malaysia where its natural habitats are subtropical or tropical moist lowland forest and subtropical or tropical moist montane forest.” (wiki)

Javan Cuckooshrike
Javan Cuckooshrike (Coracina javensis)

Eastern-crowned Warbler
Eastern-crowned Warbler (Phylloscopus coronatus)

I think this is right. It is so hard to tell with these stupid warblers.

Golden Babbler
Golden Babbler (Cyanoderma chrysaeum)

Ermagerd, it is way out of focus, this photo but such a great bird. Record shot only.

Black-eared Shrike-babbler
Black-eared Shrike-babbler (Pteruthius melanotis)

Silver-eared Mesia
Silver-eared Mesia (Leiothrix argentauris)

Mugimaki Flycatcher
Mugimaki Flycatcher (Ficedula mugimaki)

Or is it a Rufous-chested Flycatcher (Ficedula dumetoria), which it could not be because it is way out of range?

Unknown Bird
Fire-breasted Flowerpecker (Dicaeum ignipectus)

Unknown Warbler, maybe
Yellow-breasted warbler (Phylloscopus montis)

Fire-tufted Barbet
Fire-tufted Barbet (Psilopogon pyrolophus)

This is such a bad photo. But it is a pretty cool bird.

Gray-chinned  Minivet   - female
Gray-chinned Minivet (Pericrocotus solaris) – female

Mountain Tailorbird
Mountain Tailorbird (Phyllergates cucullatus)
