Chestnut-naped forktail

Post by catspace on Wed Oct 16, 2013 10:13 am

Many thanks to Nelson who brought us around his playground during our recent trip to Penang. This must be the most stressful birding trip ever for me and my wife as we spent almost 3 days waiting for this bird. During the first 2 days, it either stopped before or after our position. Once, it even flew past while I was placing the mealworm on the rocks Shocked . And later part of the day, the crowds will come and people will be swimming nearby and many motorbikes going up and down. Plus, the occasional rains made it even more challenging. We were almost giving up already. On our final morning, the female finally stopped at the rock cheers , not once but it came back twice! We were so relieved and happy to get these shots. Not our best and no where as nice as my Malaysian folks pics but we cannot complain lah Very Happy. Will definitely come back for improvement shots as well as try the other star bird.
