Long-tailed Broadbill (Psarisomus dalhousiae) 26 cm

Broadbills are much sort after by birders and bird watchers due in part to this specie's 'cute' looks which naturally endears it to the birding fraternity.. The Long-tailed Broadbill is no different. This specie is rarer than it's cousins and any sightings of the L-tB will create great excitement amongst the bird watching folks. 

The following photos capture the parental instinct of nature at work. The pair of adults were going about bringing juicy grubs and feeding the two newly hatched chicks. Small avian lifeforms fledge into a juvenile in about three weeks.
