A Pair Of White-fronted Falconet

5th March 2009



Climax from yesterday's trip with Ben and Karim, White-fronted Falconet perched exactly on the same big death tree where Ben photographed last week hahaha and as a bonus, not only 2 but 3 birds with the single one perched not far from the other pair :)

Digiscoped with Nikon Fieldscope ED82, SRB-Griturn Mk II adapter and Fujifilm F31D





It feed on Dragonflies and smaller birds


This Falconet considered the smallest in the world and found only in the northern part of Borneo Island. In the south of Borneo, this species being replaced by the Black-thigh Falconet which is found in mainland Malaysia and other countries too.
