Rufous-winged Philentoma
Photographer : © Amar-Singh HSS
Location :Trail through mixed secondary & primary jungle, Kledang-Sayong Forest Reserve, Ipoh, Perak, Malaysia
Date : 15 July 2013
English synonyms:
Bird Family :Vangini - Philentomas & woodshrikes
Red Data Status :Least Concern
Remarks :There were three birds, very active and very vocal. The female was watching two males in a very aggressive altercation. It involved an intermittent chase over a large area with occasional frontal ‘attacks’. I presume it was either a territorial battle or a fight for the female. - Amar
