Yellow-crowned Barbet (Megalaima henricii)

17th May 2011

Only once seen in Poring Hot Spring several years ago and saw it for the 2nd time with pictures and video hahaha :p

I would considered this species to be rare in my place and only sometimes heard in primary rainforest. Compared with other species of Barbet, this is a least known and photographed bird. Thanks to Jadda and the gang for pointing out this beauty :)

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

Happy birding !
