Mad bird from the Hill Station

I have seen the Mad Bird of javanica variety almost daily at my backyard, but this mountain type is my LIFER. Found it at Telekom Lop, Fraser's Hill.
This White-throated Fantail is almost identical with Pied Fantail except for the absence of whitish belly in this mountain species.

The fan tail is cool. Its neat how you constantly have an opportunity to see a completely new bird. The diversity in your region is incredible.
