Repah birding

Stake out at the waterfall area yielded this lifer, its a challenge to detect birds as you are right by the water edge. The noise of flowing water drowns all bird calls, the only tool is good eye sight to detect the slightest movement.

Grey Wagtail
Motacilla cinerea

Then back to the normal routine of quiet jungle track. Another lifer.

Asian Paradise-flycatcher
Terpsiphone paradisi

And another.

Black-winged Flycatcher-shrike
Hemipus hirundinaceus


  1. The second bird is a female Asian Paradise flycatcher, a migrant.They are not easy to shoot.

  2. Thanks Madibirder for the id.

    After checking out the species online, the next target is the male with its long fancy tail.
