Orange-breasted Trogon takes a moth

posted in: Feeding-invertebrates | 1

Ingo Waschkies photographed an Orange-breasted Trogon (Harpactes oreskios) at Bukit Timggi, Malaysia recently taking a moth.

The food of this trogon includes a variety of insects, spiders, lizards, fruits, etc. It appears that it feeds more often from the ground than other species. It also joins mixed-species flocks.

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