Day 1 at Tahura R.Soerjo

Weather: Foggy, Cloudy, and rainy.

Can't get inside the forest because the weather is bad, so i just walking around basecamp. Behind the basecamp i saw one male Pink-headed Fruit-Dove (Ptilinopus porphyreus), Little Pied Flycatcher (Ficedula westermanni), Indigo Flycacther (Eumyias indigo), and some birds.
I never seen the Pink-headed Fruit-Dove before, this is my first time and the range is not so far.

After that i go to Cangar Hot Springs with my friend. Near the Hot Spring i got the Horsfield's Thrush (Zoothera horsfieldi). This bird is very tame, so we can get closer to this bird (around 2 meters) but it's too close for 500mm lens.
I'm so happy because this is my first time saw the Horsfield Thrush in close range.

Around 9.47pm we go to find some nocturnal bird. I'm using my speaker and play some call to attract the bird, but there's no respond. Finally i saw one Brown Wood Owl (Strix leptogrammica) perching on dead tree. I never seen this bird before, so this is my first time. And my friend said this is the first record for Tahura R. Soerjo.

to be continue....

cool. some awesome pics.
if you don't mind, it's better if you write one or two paragraph as a prologue before you start the story.
where is Cangar, how you reach there, etc then people may now much more than the birds you talked about.
