Long-tailed Sibia

A very common bird at Fraser’s Hill Malaysia. Some people call it Sky Rat – because of its colour and common presence at that hill station.

Have a look for more bird pictures at the Bird Photography Weekly @ Birdfreak.com


  1. Really nice photos… The bird has such interesting eye color and quite a nice long tail.You have such interesting birds that I have not seen, very neat to see!!I will be back.

  2. I browsed through both your Beaver posts, they are awesome and you have used the flash very well to avoid eye-shine.This shot of the Sibia is no less. Congrats.

  3. Thanks ALL for your comments.They called it \”Sky Rats\” purely for the grey coloured and socially active move about like a rat.Feeding on insect and their behaviour are not like the rat or Crow that scavenging for food.
