A handicapped Blue-winged Leafbird

posted in: Miscellaneous | 0


Choo Teik Ju a.k.a choo was in China recently and brought back images of a female Blue-winged Leafbird taken from the Liuxihe National Forest Park, Conghua.

The bird had an injured right foot but this did not prevent her from moving from tree to tree foraging and from perching on the branches. Other than the injured foot, the bird was healthy and just as active as a normal bird.

This post is a cooperative effort between www.naturepixels.org and BESG to bring the study of bird behaviour through photography to a wider audience.
