Golden-fronted Leafbird

Bhan Maka, Kaengkrachan, Petburi, Thailand

I was on a birding trip with some British folks. After we loaded up our luggage on the last day, we went for lunch. A feeder near the restaurant attracted a pair of these amazing birds.
My first image of this species. It is a bird of more dry and secondary growth then Blue-winged Leafbird and thus a bit less encountered on a birding trip. This is the male.
