I know its not pin sharp, but it was such a beautiful bird I just wanted to share it.
Silver-breasted Broadbill (Serilophus lunatus)is found through South east Asia. It lives in lowland rainforest. Found this one in Kaeng Krachan National Park south west of Bangkok earlier this year.

Hallo Chris
Great to see an image from you, and what a beauty this little Silver-breasted Broadbill is. I find the details in the tailpiece, the yellowish lining around the eye and the two coloured beak very beautiful but also interesting. Thanks for sharing. Best regards.

Best regards

Hello Chris,
Beautiful photo of a beautiful bird. Nice focus on the head and natural colours. I like the OOF BG too.
