  1. I missed this one too! next time must not let be out of sight!

  2. I think it is a warbler most probably a Yellow Browed.

  3. Ari - hehe..too fast maybe...

    Madi - noted with thanks, I am using Burung2 Fraser Hill as ref.

    thanks anyway

  4. This is definitely not a shrike-babbler, from the bill and brow.. but the juvy of the scarce Yellow-browed warbler. At aptil this guys are staying rather late and should be on their way north.
