Yellow-vented Flowerpecker

Yellow-vented Flowerpecker Dicaeum chrysorrheum, is an uncommon flowerpecker of the lowlands of Borneo. I have not seen them in the cultivated gardens, this is photographed in a forest reserve when it was feeding on some hanging epiphytes.

Like most other members of this family, it is an active feeder and constantly hops from branch to branch, where it is hidden most of the time, to take a clear shot is a real hair pulling exercise.

One of my new birds taken about half a year ago, has been busy and has not much time to update my list.



Happy birding.

I think I've seen this one while on the ropeway at Poring... wobbled and nearly dropped the binoculars.
