Borneo, Day 15, 9 April 2016 - Rainforest Discovery Centre & Sepilok Forest Edge

Back at Sepilok for a couple more nights before we move on. I ought to begin with a postscript from the previous evening - after our return from KJC I ventured out for a walk around the forest trail at Sepilok Forest Edge. After almost giving up with playback I heard a tell-tail low whistle and within a few minutes I was feasting my eyes on these 2 beauties - Black-crowned Pittas, get in!

We returned again to the Rainforest Discovery Centre this morning  and were greeted upon arrival by a nice Little Bronze Cuckoo perched high in a tree by the lake. Around the trails a vocal Red-naped Trogon showed very nicely and 4 Black and Red Broadbills and a single Black and Yellow Broadbill did likewise. A Greater Racket-tailed Drongo put in an appearance and as we walked back towards the start of the walkways I kind soul pointed out a sitting Rufous-collared Kingfisher. Back on the walkway I finally scored with Bornean Bristlehead with one flying from a tree and frustratingly behind other trees and out of view.

Back at Sepilok Forest Edge in the afternoon and evening we had both Red-billed Malkoha, and Chestnut-breasted Malkoha, Oriental Dollarbird, Blue-throated Bee-eater, Blue-crowned Hanging Parrot, White-crowned Shama, 2 Common Hill Mynas, Chestnut-winged Babbler, White-bellied Sea Eagle and Yellow-eared Spiderhunter amongst the usual common species. Around the forest trail a little Rufous Piculet gave close views and a Black-winged Kite was over the woods.
