Jambu Fruit Dove
Spotted in mangrove of Sepilok Laut.
Seen in Lok Kawi Wildlife Park. A bird with bald head, haha..
This is one of the best known birds for village people. They think Lesser Coucal has the formula to heal broken bone, so they would purposely break the bone of its chick. The parent will bring back the herb to heal the chick.
Spotted in hill forest of Tambunan. This dove was taking a nap after heavy meal of fruits.
Though this bird is migratory bird. We see them all year round, mainly around dumpster sites.

Spotted in hill forest of Tambunan.
The commonest spiderhunter species, but I am always confused them with sunbirds.
A agricultural pest as they feed on fruits and seeds. A bit surprise to see one in Tanjung Aru Beach.
A common singing bird, always seen around housing and forest edge. Chinese calls this bird “Happy Bird” (喜鹊) as they believe this bird is a messenger for good news.
