The Mangrove Blue Flycatcher (Cyornis rufigastra) 14.5 cm

I stumbled upon this juvenile along the wooden walkway built over the mangrove swarm below in Kuala Selangor Nature Park. It was alone and flew in to perch on a branch quite close to the rest hut adjoining the walkway. Although it was almost noon time lighting was not good with the healthy growing  mangroves casting heavy shadows beneath the mangrove trees. on the positive side it is an indication of the successful replanting exercise carried out by Malaysian Nature Society (MNS) in stages in this park. By the way MNS also manage this park.

Taking advantage of periodic light streams which cut through the leaves and exposed the Flycatcher to sunlight I took a couple of quick shots. Below are 3 photos for sharing..

Have a nice day! Cheers!
