Large Niltava


The male and female are quite different from each other with each their own striking features. Although the female lacks the deep purple plumage, it has nice pale blue shoulder patches that contrast beautifully against its buffy plumage.

The large niltava is common in Fraser's Hill and these pair was photograph at the High Pines bungalow.I would see them everyday on the telephone wire.
