Mermaid in a slipper tub :). That’s the last one!
A couple of Gray-chinned Minivet, Pericrocotus solaris (Passeriformes - Campephagidae), taken at DaSyueShan Trail, Taichung County, Taiwan.
This species is found in Bangladesh, Bhutan, Cambodia, China, India, Indonesia, Laos, Malaysia, Myanmar, Nepal, Taiwan, Thailand, and Viet Nam [source].
The two birds shown are males, probably embroiled in a territorial or courtship mess. In any case they reveal their beautiful color pattern.
