BLACK-AND-RED BROADBILL


Black-and-red Broadbill, Cymbirhynchus macrorhynchos, is an amazing broadbill seen in Kaeng Krachan.This little bird is found in Southeast Asia.This bird inhabits near streams and pools in subtropical and tropical lowland mangroves and rainforests.They make their nest near water during the dry season.These birds have a conspicuous large bill, pale blue in upper mandible and golden in lower mandible.Sexes are alike.

This species is classified as Least Concern.However it’s a species hard to find in Thailand.Kaeng krachan seems a good place to see this amazing bird, in Bang Krang Campsite.I took this video early morning, in poor lighting conditions, in a cloudy day.
