“I saw 9 non-breeding Ruff (Philomachus pugnax) today at Malim Nawar. Four were large birds (presumed males) and 5 smaller birds (presumed females).

“The image above shows most of them with Black-winged Stilts and Marsh Sandpipers.

“Above shows a smaller bird in foreground (presumed female) and large in background (male).

“This close-up image of a smaller bird (female) (above)…

“..and the image above of a larger individual (male).”

“The video above shows 3 birds. The large bird is the male and 2 smaller birds are females.”
