Dusky Broadbill - Corydon sumatranus
This is the largest but not the prettiest of the broadbills found in West Malaysia. They average 26 cm from beak to tail. They have a series of shrill screams of high pitched whistles.
Exposure details – 1/160 f/8 ISO400 EV-2/3 Flash -2

Hello Phil
I have never seen this interesting bird before so I would like to thank you for showing it to us. As you say, maybe not the prettiest but i like that petulant and seemingly ill-tempered face. The composition looks good and so does the colours and the focus. The photo shows excellent contrasts especially on the black plumage of the bird. Good effort.

Hi Phil,
As already mentioned above the petulant face is great.
Well composed and colourful image.
Is it shot into the wild?

Hello Phil,
There aren't much photos of this Broadbill on internet. This is the best I've seen. The photo is sharp with good colours and a good composition. The expression of the bird is wonderful.
