Oriental Dollarbird

Eurystomus orientalis

Description:

I heard a strange bird calling yesterday morning, then spotted this Oriental Dollarbird high up on a branch of a dead tree. First time I've spotted this bird and not a great photo because it was so high

Habitat:

Wiki description to a tee - Quote "It is most commonly seen as a single bird with a distinctive upright silhouette on a bare branch high in a tree, from which it hawks for insects, returning to the same perch after a few seconds".
