Anyways, I hope the weather will be decent tomorrow for another outing - not sure where I am going yet though.
Pictures of the birds in Bloedel are almost all finished, just two more species to go. There were many Red-winged Laughingthrushes (Garrulax formosus) around, especially near the feeding areas, and I noticed that they seemed to travel in pairs running around in the low undergrowth.
The Laughingthrushes have lovely whistling songs and they are native to soutwest China and northwest Vietnam and belong to the Old World babbler family (Timaliidae).
These birds are not afraid of humans at all, with some just inches away from me perching on a branch at eye-level. Despite their surrounding, I really like this shot because of how "natural" it looked, almost as if they are in their native habitat.
