Hose's Broadbill - Calyptomena hosei 20cm


One of the rarest and least known endemic broadbill to Borneo. Found throughout the hills and lower slopes of mountains from Kinabalu ( Poring ) to NE kalimantan and also at Mulu, Kelabit highland, usun apau, Lawas and Lanjak Entimau Sarawak. This picture taken last year Near Langganan Waterfall about 3km from the main office at poring Hots Spring. This is the second time i saw this bird after 10 long year looking for it.
