Spectacled Flowerpecker

Latin Name : Dicaeum species

Site Name : DanumBRL

Photographer : PHILLIPPS, Karen

Date : 0000-00-00

Notes : This flowerpecker is believed to be the first new Bornean endemic bird species discovered in nearly 100 years. Two different individuals were first seen and photographed by an American bird tour guide Richard Webster from the canopy walkway at Danum feeding on Viscum mistletoe fruits in June 2009. As no specimens have yet been caught and described this flowerpecker remains officially un-named.
