Fraser's Hill - Silver-eared Mesia Behavior

My Word TuesdayClick the above LOGO for more participation of MyWorld from all over the world.

Continue the rambling about my outing at Fraser's Hill last Sunday.
After the beautiful Green Magpie left, a small flock of Silver-Eared Mesia entertained me with their antic feeding behavior.

This male Silver-Eared Mesia landed with something on his mouth...

Silver-eared Mesia BehaviorAt 9.00am the birds activity at the resort became less, so I went to Jeriau Waterfall to find the Red-headed Trogon. It was regularly spotted at that location. My eyes were constantly scanning the tree for any movement and for any red or orange colour , but none to be found.

I am not complaining, there will always be a next visit. I went home at 12.00pm, tired but very happy for that green lifer.

beautiful photos! How lucky you are to live in a place with such colorful birds! Even the berries are colorful! How tranquil the last scene looks!
Missouri primrose, sundrops, evening primrose--all the same thing. Evening primrose oil contains gamma-linolenic acid (GLA) which people use for a variety of ailments.

I hope that male learned his lesson and shares next time! Those are so beautiful.

Fraser's Hill is a good place to go for a vacation, for a non-birder as well.

The scenery is good and quiet.

You have a funny female Silver-Eared Mesia.

Wilma said...

Great post, Tabib. I really like the mesia series with your interpretation of their conversation.
Cheers,
