Pygmy Ibon

Here’s a case for bird photography.  The Pygmy Ibon (Pygmy White-eye) Oculocincta squamifrons is locally common in hill forests populated with recolonizers of the Macaranga species of trees.  It has a tendency of being overlooked as it is more warbler-like and it is difficult to see the thin white eye-ring.  With the luxury of photographic examination, the forehead appears more like thin wavy dashes in white than speckles as described in most publications.

A Bornean endemic.
