Been busy recently with bird surveys, documentary and then Borneo Bird Festival together with Swarovski Optik Singapore, I managed to get few shots of these Hooded Pitta while staying at Uncle Tan Base, about 1km away from Rainforest Discovery Centre, Sepilok together with RTM crews.
It was seen hunting for earth worms at one of the tree few times before flying back to its nest. My 1st shot of Pitta in the open!
Digiscoped with Swarovski STX 95 + TLS APO + Nikon V1 ~ 30x = 2430mm
One of the resident Pitta out of 10 species recorded in Borneo
Happy birding everyone!
