posted in: Feeding strategy | 0

On 1st Ocrober 2014, Dato’ Dr Amar-Singh HSS encountered a mixed species foraging party at 1,600m ASL Cameron Highlands, Pahang, Malaysia. The habitat, a clearing adjacent to primary forest

Species participating in the mixed foraging party:

1. A pair of Bar-winged Flycatcher-shrikes (Hemipus picatus intermedius) (above, with prey).

2. A few Mountain Fulvettas (Alcippe peracensis) were seen feeding on fruit (above).

3. A few Yellow-rumped Flycatchers (Ficedula zanthopygia) – white wing bar is less prominent making me think this is a first winter bird rather than a female (above).

4. Others include a flock of Everett’s White-eye (Zosterops everetti tahanensis), Blue-winged Minlas (Minla cyanouroptera), Black-throated Sunbirds (Aethopyga saturate) and Black-crested Bulbuls (Pycnonotus melanicterus).
