“There at least 3 pairs of Tickell’s Blue Flycatchers (Cyornis tickelliae sumatrensis) on a long trail into primary forest at one site in this reserve; more often heard than seen.

“This pair was nesting in a bamboo thicket. I managed some images of the adults under the dark canopy. The image above is an adult male, below are two images of an adult female.
