The Black-and-Yellow: The Colors of the Rainforest

Arguably one of the most flamboyant colored birds in the rainforest and probably the best looking ones(to me they are), the Black-and-Yellow Broadbill never ceased to impress me.

I've seen and photographed them in Sugud Forest Reserve (SFR) just outside of Kota Kinabalu Vicinity, but here in Sepilok that I've came up close and personal with them. Their sheer beauty complemented with their friendly behaviour is a photographer's dream come true.

During my recent trip to Sandakan, the Black-and-yellow Broadbill made my day just in the nick of time in Sepilok. I had lost hope when a sudden down pour took away a few hours of my valuable time there. Frustrated, I checked and rechecked my watch hoping to see 'light' from the barometer.

Indeed, there was hope. Just after 5.00pm, as promised by my watch the rain stopped and action began. Enjoy the colors of the rainforest, The Black-and-yellow Broadbill:-

Spectular bird, almost gaudy, but amazing! Brilliant! A caricature of itself. : )
