AMUR FALCON

Another rarity – The Amur Falcon at Lorong Halus. Flying high and catches insects on flight – only made me realize that there are numerous flying insects high beyond the canopy.

The resident CG is thriving well. Food supply is abundant and within easy reach. A few families of chickens in our parks ensures its family survival.

Copper-throated Sunbird – found exclusively in mangrove habitats, nests are built low and on flexible branches and away from prying eyes/ predators. Often seen as a black bird, the copper tone only appears when light is shone on its neck.
