Ugly Broadbill

Dusky Broadbill (Corydon sumatranus)

Location: Japanese Garden, Bukit Tinggi, Pahang.


  1. Perhaps \”modest broadbill\” might be better! Did you know that this species has \”a patch of lanceolate hackles in centre of mantle, peach pink with fiery red edging or peach yellow with orange edging, shafts white and tips black (hidden when resting but guessed to function in displays)\” (Wells 2007). This is rarely seen and perhaps never photographed!
