Thanks, Arne. Yes, I had a look at your link and it says that the bird is endmeic throughout the Philippines and likes "moist lowland forests". So, I might have a chance to see one around here.

Great pictures of a beautiful bird, Arne. I don't think I have seen one of those Philippine Pied Fantails before. I don't know if it exists in our area. I'll need to have a look at your reference link. Thanks for sharing.
