I was able to observe a number of Banded Broadbills (Eurylaimus javanicus pallidus) today (above).
One of them had immature plumage and was self-feeding. I was deciding if it was a juvenile or subadult. The breast was pale with a central dark stripe all the way up but the upper parts were reasonable well developed as was the face (above, below). This coupled with the self-feeding suggests a subadult.
Prey seen taken was some type of Stag beetle (family Lucanidae) – see below.
