[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Walking in the pine forests of Mount Lang Bian... You hear a sound of an owl in the day time. It really sounds like a Spot-bellied Eagle Owl. Actually you don't have much time because you arranged a ranger you to get you just in 15 minutes.

However curiosity wins...You start to walk in the valley down in the forest. Suddenly the owl stops calling but you see some red birds in the pines. and there your lifer comes :) Long-tailed Minivets 'Pericrocotus ethologus'

ps. We after realised that call belongs to a Mountain Imperial Pigeon. ;)

Hello Emin,
What a brightly colored bird you have presented to us. The Long-tailed Minivet is certainly a gorgeous bird as is evident by your wonderful image.
The shape of it's body and black head reminds me a little bit of our American Redstart.

difficult counter light conditions but good shot. Thanks for showing

Very beautiful red bird, Emin.
