Blue-winged Pitta ( pitta moluccensis ) 18 - 20 cm

Pittas are a rare breed. I have made it an objective on each birding trip to known Pitta habitat to keep a look-out for these skittish birds. Due in part to this specie's preference for the quiet habitat comprising of mangrove or forest covered with thick foliage makes it doubly difficult to cross path with them. My lucky break came through information shared by my friends Tang and Andy. I finally landed my Pitta Lifer! -  not one but two Blue-winged. What a bonus! Here are a few photos for sharing.
