31.03.2018 Putrajaya Botanic Garden

I have been to this place twice, that was the time when I had my compact camera, just shooting around the flowers and sceneries. Two lifers found in each visit, one was the Red Banded Woodpecker and one more is the Stripe Throated Bulbul. 

I reached the Botanical Garden at 8.40am. I hit a lifer again here. Its a Lineated Barbet. I couldn't make a clear shot as it came and go in a zap! The presence of coconut trees her also attract the Brown Throated Sunbirds. This place now is well populated by Black Naped Orioles, Javan Mynah and Oriental Magpie Robins.

I even surprise to see a pair of White Collared Kingfishers here near the lakes. I never sighted any during my previous visits. At the fig trees area, I manage to spot a Coppersmith Barbet and male Asian Koel. The Asian Koel is a large migrant cuckoo species which can be seen often between December and June. They are parasitic brooders. Males are black and females are brown with pale spots all over. The female's plumage helps as a camouflage while it lays its egg on other birds' nest...unnoticed by the nest owner.
