Locally known as "murai". Very fast to move and hard to capture. Very busy in the evening especially in pairs.
It is found in Brunei, Indonesia, Malaysia, Myanmar, Singapore, and Thailand. Its natural habitats are subtropical or tropical moist lowland forests and subtropical or tropical mangrove forests. It is threatened by habitat loss.(Wikipedia)

Hi Foozi,
Just a little correction on the ID. Not Copsychus (Oriental Magpie-Robin), and not Platysmurus (a totally black bird exception for white wing slashes). This is a Pied Fantail (Rhipidura javanica).


P.S - i. TQ to Jus for help and expertise rendered.
ii. Millions of thanks to Cuckoroller too

Assalamualaikum Foozi. Beautifully perched murai on diagonal branch. Stunning perch exposing the beautiful plumage. Brilliant sharp eye with hairs around the beak clearly visible. I like the pleasant muted green background which complements well with the black bird. Well done and best regards. Jusni

this is so close to our "willy wagtail"! given their speed and antics, great capture!

Hi foozi,

I really enjoy your album today. You have captured lots of different insects & birds with superb clarity. Even i got some ID's of some species that i've captured. I just want to correct the ID of this bird, that is 'WHITE BROWED FANTAIL'.
Thanks for these beautifuls PICS.
