Tabib said...

Thanks ALL for comments.

While waiting for Penang Gang check-out at 12.30pm, I noticed this birds and Streak Spiderhunter foraging.
The birds were very near, just outside of parameter fence and didn't bother with us. Full frame with no crop, and most of my shoots are with clip tail and head.

Terece; No, I didn't see any Sparrowhawk.
