Gunung Ulu Kali is 1800 meters above sea level and is approximately 58 kms from the city of Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. A journey by road takes about 1 hour.
We were greeted by a pair of local residents, the Javan Cuckoo Shrike. This time around they were 'friendlier' and stayed longer.
Next up were 6 Long-tailed Sibias, comprising of adults and juveniles in tow. Again they stayed longer than usual. The extended stay presented opportunities to capture 'moments' shots like the one below. A family cuddling together.
The Lesser Shortwing is the 'icing on the cake', so to speak, for this trip. On an earlier trip I did get a couple of shots of this very skittish fella. I was hoping to get improved shots this trip. Just waiting for it to show itself took a collective total of about 3 hours! The eventual reward was just a handful of shots which required some serious post editing to mask the 'unnatutral' background. :-) Here are 2 of the pix.
