[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Black and Red Broadbill – Cymbirhynchus macrohynchos
The dark maroon red contrast well with the blue bill and white streaks go well on the black wings. It was hard getting this one as they were always under canopy cover shooting through gaps. Just a record shot here unfortunately. They average 23 cm in length.
Habitat: Broadleaved evergreen and semi-evergreen jungle and jungle edge near water, fresh water swamp jungle up to 300m.
Exposure details – 1/200 f/8 ISO400 EV-1/3 Flash -2

Hello Phil,

It's uncredible the different kind of bird in this country, every day you show us another one it's marvelous, this mix of colours. TFS again.


Gorgeous colors. Lovely detail and clarity. One of the things I like best about Treknature is that there is always something new to see. TFS, Mish
