|Pied Fantail (Samabar Murai Gila) - Rhipidura javanica is seen at the Mango tree branch|
Location : Kambatik garden, Kuching.
park in Bintulu, this is the first time I come across the bird in our Kuching garden What's more remarkable is the opportunity it gave me to get sharperimages of the bird. With its habit of coming to garden on a daily basis I would therefore consider it a common garden bird of Sarawak, especially in the lowland areas.
|A common lowland resident throughout Sarawak. Feeds on insects and forages in the lower and middle storeys. Active and noisy and regularly fan out its tail.|
