30th March 2010
Took this shots at Likas Lagoon the day after it rained heavily within few weeks. It is a uncommon winter visitor for North Borneo and easily distinguished between adult and juvenile based on the marking and colour of plumage.
According to CK Leong, this species used to be rare here but slowly the number that arrived every season is accumulating which is a good sign.
Digiscoped with Nikon Fieldscope ED82 via FSA-L1 adapter and Nikon D300s.
Other resident at the lagoon, Yellow-bellied Prinia
Happy birding and I will be off for bird survey at Mantanani Island next week :)
