The Rufous-backed Kingfisher, Ceyx Rufidorsa, is a species of bird in the Alcedinidae family. It is found in Brunei, India, Indonesia, Malaysia, the Philippines, and Thailand in tropical lowland forests near lakeshores and streamsides. The small bird is solitary and hunts from a low perch over the water by diving for insects and frogs.
Looking like little more than a clump of dead leaves on a branch, a pair of Dulit Frogmouths (Batrachostomus harterti) perch on their nest. This exceedingly rare bird is endemic to the mountains of northern Borneo where it is known from only a handful of specimens and sight records. @chienleephotography .
