Long-tailed Broadbill (Psarisomus dalhousiae)

12th February 2011

A day visit at Tambunan Rafflesia Centre with Joe and Sis produced few interesting birds with pictures especially the Long-tailed Broadbill as seen here with Whitehead's Spiderhunter and my lifer the sub-adult Rusty-breasted Cuckoo :)

These pair was seen feeding nearby and then flew into their nest just above my head on the same tree with the elusive Whitehead's Spiderhunter feeding nectars on the reddish colour flowers.

Digiscoped with Nikon Fieldscope EDG85 via Nikon FSA-L2 DSLR Photo Adapter on Nikon D300s

500mm ~ Cropped with Nikon Capture NX2

Sometimes birders referred this bird as wearing helmet !

Feeding the female

Happy birding folks and I will be away on birding tours until the end of March. Will update my blog while on the move :)
