Short-Tailed Green Magpie


Using Canon 7D, 300mm 2.8, ISO1600, 1/50, f3.5

Taken at Kinabalu Park, at 20SEP2011 with a couple from Singapore.  This We were attracted by its loud variety of harsh whistles and chattering call.  We saw 3 magpie flying around the same areas, seem like collecting something, after much exploring inner to the dense brushes, we discovered that they are actually in the process of building a nest, that’s why they have been flying back and fro the same spots with things at their mouth.

We have also seen this bird at Mt. Alab too, along Tambunan Road, which is about 1600m above sea level.
