Bar-winged Flycatcher-shrike

Bar-winged Flycatcher-shrike Hemipus picatus is a common resident of Borneo, it is mainly a sub-montane and montane bird, probably occurring throughout the mountains of Borneo, mostly from 750 to 1835 m, but occasionally brlow 150m.

It is also recorded in low altitude lowland dipterocarp forest at Kalabakan near Tawau.

I saw this bird in Kinabalu Park and Rafflesia Centre, which are montane. I have yet to see it from lowland forests.

This male bird was photographed in Rafflesia Centre, it is my new photographed wild bird.

Happy birding.
