Blue-winged Pitta

Blue-winged Pitta is an uncommon non-breeding visitor to Borneo. I have missed opportunities to see this bird for a few years but this year, a friend of mine told me to try at Bukit Padang.

So I decided to try my luck at this place. It was actually an overflow drainage for the Bukit Padang lake. Never expected such place can find a Pitta.

To my surprise after waiting for 30 minutes, I saw the Pitta came out from nowhere. WOW!! What a beautiful bird it was. Another addition for my Pitta collection.
