Bukit Fraser birding pt 5

On the last day went to the TELEKOM tower, was hoping for the HELICOPTER bird. But no luck. A cloud of mist blows up from the valley down below, bringing along a flock of birds.

Fulvettas and Babblers.

Lifer, not exactly photo perfect with the puking like look. Best I could do in the mist and a little photoshop.

Grey-throated Babbler
Stachyris nigriceps

Lifer, like the innocent look.

Mountain Fulvetta
Alcippe peracensis

Woodpecker again

Lesser Yellownape
Picus chlorolophus

A flock of pigeons suddenly decide to perch on a tall dead tree. Their droppy wings give them a vulture like appearance.

Then came rain and mists. Tiger in the woods, seeking shelter from the rain.
