Mad Bird – Murai Gila – SkyWatch Friday

This bird is really “Gila” (mad/crazy), never stay still – hyperactive, jumping around, jerking, gyrating, turning and fanning to show off its tail. Very difficult to photograph.

  1. Thank for a visit, Good morning! (very early morning over here). :)KB Guy, the male and female look the same in this species.Hi Maria!, yes perched at banana leaf.

  2. I like this murai gila. Is this fella also very bising? If male and female bird look the same, how do their differentiate each other? I mean how does the male seek out the female for courtship.
