Awesome spot Bill!
Please can you add the scientific name (Megalaima haemacephala) in the correct box. Because we have a global user base & sometimes many different common names for the same species, the system uses the scientific name to link similar spottings - which also means this may come up in the thumbnails on other spottings & more people may take a look & favorite it.
Welcome to the Community!
