Research output: Book Chapters | Papers in Conference ProceedingsBook ChapterResearchpeer-review


While doing a bird survey at Tai Po Kau Nature Reserve in the morning on 30 December 2014, Yik-hei Sung (SYH) and Yat-tung Yu (YYT), walked along the Brown-Yellow Nature Trail in the high area of Tai Po Kau Nature Reserve. SYH noted a large green bird, presumably a barbet, slowing moving between branches above us in a distance about 10m away. We quickly used our binoculars to observe the bird, though we assumed initially that it could only be a Great Barbet Psilopogon virens. However, the first look of the bird revealed that it was not a Great Barbet, and YYT verbally made field notes with SYH for identification of this bird as summarised below.
