  2. Hi, bro, very nice bird.. this is the oriental dwarf of the rufous-backed kind (which is Ceyx rufidorsa rufidorsa). Its sub-race in Borneo has abit of blue (Ceyx rufidorsa motleyi) but not found in peninsula. The other ODKF in the peninsula but different species has abit of blue on the ear and wings, and is a migrant only, i.e Black-backed Oriental Dwarf KF (Ceyx erithacus). Hope its clear. Great find too.
