Black & Yellow Broadbill
(Eurylaimus ochromalus) 黑黄阔嘴鸟
Size: 15 cm
Location Panti Forest Reserve (Johor/Malaysia)

Unmistakable; note small size, broad bill, and yellow on wings and back; pinkish under-parts show in front view.

An accelerating trill, 7-11 sec long.

Found in primary and mature secondary lowland rainforest. Occurs up to 900m on Sumatra. Not often seen because of its small size. It feeds mainly on insects, high in the middle and upper storeys of the forest. Its possibly more numerous than sightings suggest. Once its call is learned, this species may be recorded more often.

Extinct resident breeder in Singapore.

hi Ang,
am already a fan of Broadbills since the time i saw one in the jungles of Buxa Tiger Reserve Forest. and this one is a new to me! the birds of South-East Asia are my heart throbs. once am back to India, i would love to visit the forests and wildlife sanctuaries of North-Easter part of our country once again. thanks for this bird, Ang. your shot is also very good. good DoF and a good angle. lovely bird.
