Bird Series 16 - Orange-breasted Trogon

this bird is common @Bukit Tinggi, Pahang, Malaysia. it friendly to human (thanks for the birders photographer well train this bird)... but not for other places .. I saw few other types or same types at other places but they are just shy ....

an this is a beautiful bird, beside owl, Kingfishers .. I love this bird so much but too bad I missed the blue trogon @Cibodas, Java which require far tracking make me failed ...
