July 16 2010. Over the past few days, I was trying very hard to photograph the Chestnut-naped Fork-tail at Ulu Paip lowland forest. I was lucky and successful in getting the Blue-banded Kingfisher but it was non-success for the Fork-tail.
I realized that the Chestnut-naped Fork-tail is a very shy and smart bird. It always sensitives to human present. During a few instances, I was wearing a camouflage netting and hid under a tree. The Fork-tail some-how knew about my present there. It diverted away from me when it approached my hiding location although I was along the flight path. I only managed to get 2 blur pictures of the Fork-tail so far. I am still looking for ways to get near to it. Hopefully my hard work will bring success soon. Here are the 2 blur photos :
