This was the first bird that I spotted in Fraser's Hill (and name accurately too) so that's the reason why this is my favourite photograph! Still there are other reasons to love this bird. It looks particularly photogenic and loveable with its plump green body, over-sized head and fiery nasal tufts. Fiery Nasal tufts? That's golden nose hair in birdspeak for you.

Type:Fire-tufted Barbet
Scientific Name: Psilopogon pyrolophus

to see the bird extending its neck.
Where:Fraser's Pine Resort, Fraser's Hill, Pahang, Malaysia


Photography Note:Shooting this plump bird was easy. It has a tendency to pose in trees for the longest time while snacking on palm fruit.

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
