Ratchet-tailed Treepie

  Temnurus temnurus
Bach Ma National Park, Vietnam - 10 mars 2018

A dorsal view of a Ratchet-tailed Treepie.
We had chased this unobtrusive bird already in Thailand, but failed. The Ratchet-tailed Treepie has quite secretive habits, and doesn’t show much in the open like many other members in the crow family. This day it was raining heavily and fog swept through the forest. But the calls reveiled their presence, and finally I was able to track down this bird nearly as open as I had hoped for.
