It's been quite sometime since I last sighted the Chestnut-breasted Malkoha. So it was to my delight when a pair were amongst the early birds which showed themselves as my friends and I were about to set out for our birding outing. A shy and sensitive specie both decided to keep their distance, although we ensured we kept sufficient space between ourselves and the pair. I managed to take in 3 shots of one of them before both birds flew deeper into the forest. Here are 2 photos.
