Chestnut-breasted Malkoha – back view of a female

posted in: Morphology-Develop. | 3

“I was watching a pair of Chestnut-breasted Malkohas (Phaenicophaeus curvirostris singularis) foraging and trying to get flight images, as they glided from tree to tree. My best was a rear view of the female showing plumage in full sunlight.”
