Mesilau Nature Resort : The Bornean Whistling Thrush

Introduced in The Photographic Guide To Birds Of Borneo as "Dark and romantic birds, evocative of deep shady gullies and misty mornings, they give an eerie ventriloquial whistle".

Shy they are not, but playing hard to get maybe the best way to describe their behavior here in Mesilau. They are easily seen foraging in the open, with the right approach one can get very close and capture those beautiful fine details.

I have yet to obtain satisfactory pictures of the male so far. They are more mysterious and cautious I guess. In the meantime...enjoy my borneensis;




P/s : Endemic status obtained thus correct Id is Bornean Whistling Thrush (Myophonus glaucinus borneensis) Thanks to Mr. Andrew Siani of Borneoavifauna.blogspot.
