Whiskered Treeswift


Whiskered Treeswift (Male)
August 22 2010, Recently I successfully photographed the Whiskered Treeswift (hemiprocne Comata) at the Sungai Sedim Lowland Forest. Broadleaved evergreen forest is the habitat for Whiskered Treeswift. It likes to perch high up at the exposed branches, sometimes making it difficult to get a good shot of the species. Yesterday, I found this pair of male and female perched at an exposed branch of a tree at Sungai Sedim Lowland Forest. Luckily the exposed branch is low enough to let me have a decent shot of the subject. The photos were captured using the 1 D mk IV and the EF 800 IS with 1.4 TC.

That bird is fantastic, clear and pretty.

Like the last photo!
The nest is so small that it's almost completely covered by the bird's belly.
