Kingfisher and Hornbill

Another 15 minutes of birds photography this morning.
Managed to captured this:
--> White-throated Kingfisher
(Pekaka Dada Putih)
Halcyon smyrnensis

How much I have to crop the original picture below. That the only way to identify it.
With ISO 1600 to maintain the sufficient shutter speed, the final image is very grainy. Can't even see the bird's eyes.
I think 400mm telephoto will solve this issue.
Time for Canon 400mm f5.6 prime "L" lens.
This is what photography forumner called "racun"

Oriental Pied Hornbill
(Anthracoceros albirostris)

Bulbul, Myna and Yellow Bird

Yellow vented bulbul searching for food

Yellow vented bulbul staring at my lens


Sitting for half an hour (before going to work!) with Tamron 70-300mm, at ISO 1600.
That is why the pictures are noisy/grainy. Never mind, still learning....
I still not sure what is the name of that yellow bird, "burung punai"?? [not that punailah! ;-)]

Yellow vented bulbul
Pycnonotus goiavier
Merbah Kapur

Common Myna
(Tiong Gembala Kerbau)
Acridotheres tristis

Tiung Sawah -Juvenile

Jungle Myna
(Tiung Sawah)
Acridotheres fuscus

Can you spot the difference from Common Myna?. There is no bare skin around eye,

I got the bird's name:-
black-naped oriole
Oriolus chinensis
Dendang Selayang/Kunyit Besar
