Also known as the Bornean Falconet, it is the world's smallest bird-of-prey! It grows up to 15cm tall only.

Another holder for that record size is the Black-thighed falconet which is the same size too. It was looking down at us as we did our rescued snake release work.

Thanks Neil. Now you know about it :-)
Incredible spotting! I've never heard of the species before. Thanks for the introduction :)
You are welcome Jae. It is still a great hunter indeed whatever the size is.
Awesome spotting, ChunXingWong. It might be the smallest bird of prey, its talons still look menacing. Thank you for sharing this.
