Long-Tailed Broadbill

4th May 2012, , Fraser’s HIll, Pahang

Local Name: Takau Ekor Panjang

Scientific Name: Psarisomus dalhousiae

Elvis is alive in Fraser’s Hill…….. that’s what birders say everytime they see this bird!   Hmmmmm…… I wonder why?





  1. So it's an Elvis bird in Malaysia!
    In Thailand, we say it's wearing a helmet.

  2. Love the broadbills! I hope to see them in person some day. Of course I never saw Elvis in person either ...

  3. They are simply gorgeous birds, I always look forward to next sighting. Being a celebrity bird they are on the top wnted list of most biders/ photographers and that in itself present a threat to the species. One has to be very careful with LTBB for they are very sensitive to human presence ,especially when they are nesting
