Banded Broadbill

posted in: birds, Feeding strategy, Interspecific | 0

I observed this single Banded Broadbill (Eurylaimus javanicus pallidus) as part of a mixed foraging party. Most sources do not state its participation in bird waves excect for Wells (2007) who quotes one source to affirm this.

The other birds in this mixed foraging party were:

Asian Fairy Bluebird Irena puella malayensis – predominant bird, 7-8 involved

Greater Green Leafbird Chloropsis sonnerati zosterops – at least 2 birds

Lesser Green Leafbird Chloropsis cyanopogon – at least 2 birds

Velvet-fronted Nuthatch Sitta frontalis saturatior – at least 2 birds

Cream-vented Bulbul Pycnonotus simplex – at least 2 birds

Scaly-Breasted Bulbul Pycnonotus squamatus webberi – one bird seen

Red-eyed Bulbul Pycnonotus brunneus brunneus – one bird seen

Ashy Minivet Pericrocotus divaricatus divaricatus – one bird seen

Large Woodshrike Tephrodornis gularis fretensis – one bird seen

Yellow-vented Flowerpecker Dicaeum chrysorrheum chrysorrheum – one bird seen

Other unidentified Flowerpeckers (not seen well)
